1962 Hermes 3000 Serial # 3164197 1962 Hermes 3000 typewriter, Serial # 3164197 Julian Walkner's 1962 Hermes 3000 typewriter. 2021-02-21 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Julian Walkner: 1962 Hermes 3000 Serial # 3164197 This Hermes 3000 looks like it came right out of the factory. No scratch or spot. Nothing.
It is wonderful to type on. When you hit a key you hear a sound that reminds me of a sharp scissor cutting through a piece of paper.
Oh, and look at this case! The chrome!
Is there anything I can complain about?
Of course! The Pica typeface...
I wish it were Director Pica

I turned the black/red silk ribbon upside down.
The black has mixed into the red anyway, making it a nice dark red.

I bought my first typewriter so that while I was learning Italian, I wouldn't have to write every sentence and word by hand. Now I am surrounded by 5 Olivetti machines ... they seem to be attracted to my new language skills.
