1970 Hermes 3000 Serial # 7062133 1970 Hermes 3000 typewriter, Serial # 7062133 Jere Hyrsky's 1970 Hermes 3000 typewriter. 2024-06-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jere Hyrsky: 1970 Hermes 3000 Serial # 7062133 A very early 3rd generation Hermes 3000, with a wide carriage, the old standard Swedish/Finnish keyboard layout, and some kind of a sans-serif typeface. Carrying case missing, but came with a Hermes branded dust cover. In good working order, except for the right side carriage button, which is currently broken. A part of the carriage's right side panel is missing as well. The sticker at the back does not tell where it was built, but I am assuming France.

I want to spend less time on electronic devices, so I started doing my writing with pens and pencils, and now on typewriters as well. My intention is not to collect typewriters just for the sake of collecting them, but I want to actually use them for work and to learn how to maintain them myself.

Overall favorite typewriter at the moment: Erika Daro 41. The first one I got, and still the best and my go-to machine when typing at home. Very smooth typing experience (except for the somewhat clunky backspace mechanism), good controls and pretty much all the features I could ask for in a typewriter.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Hermes 3000 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Hermes Serial Number page and the Hermes 3000 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
