1965 Hermes 3000 Serial # 3326919 1965 Hermes 3000 typewriter, Serial # 3326919 Geir Kihle Hanssen's 1965 Hermes 3000 typewriter. 2022-01-11 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Geir Kihle Hanssen: 1965 Hermes 3000 Serial # 3326919 I live in Norway which is why finding an American Hermes 3000 was interesting. The previous owner studied in his youth in the USA and bought this machine when he did. At the time, they didn't use typewriters for school tasks, it was just a curiosity item for him. He brought it back to Norway with him, but never really used it again when he got back. It does lack the Norwegian special characters, but 90% of the time I write in English regardless so that doesn't matter much to me.

I am a Norwegian fellow who enjoys tinkering and fixing up typewriters. One day I decided I wanted a typewriter to write letters on. I bought one that turned out not to work. I got annoyed and decided I should be able to figure out what was wrong and fix it. I did it, but the rush of successfully mending such an intricate machine was like a drug. I wanted more. I decided I would try to buy non-functioning, but pretty machines, fix them and sell them before repeating the process. What I didn't expect was that I would fall in love with the machines I fix so now I suddenly find myself a bit of a collector.
