1976 Hermes 3000 Serial # 7419549 1976 Hermes 3000 typewriter, Serial # 7419549 Tas Kyprianou's 1976 Hermes 3000 typewriter. 2023-09-02 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tas Kyprianou: 1976 Hermes 3000 Serial # 7419549 I'm a huge fan of the Mk3 3000 and had never seen a wide carriage version before. I quite fancied this one when I saw it. These initial photos are of the machine as it arrived; covered in what looks and smells like make-up. It's now lovely and clean. The red ribbon indicating the margins is totally missing (it's not even inside the carriage). Apart from that, this Hungarian-built 3000 feels like every other Mk 3 I've had in my possession, gorgeous . . . only somehow with a silkier action. I don't think this saw much use.

*Sad to have just let this one go but, space . . .

Not bad considering it probably hasn't been cleaned since 1976.

UK member with Greek Cypriot heritage, living in London.
Relatively new to the hobby - My first machine was an Everest Mod 90 that I bought after watching a Violet Evergarden anime in December 2021.
My collection now consists of 41 machines.

My absolute favourite remains (just) my 1939 Royal KMM. For me, it's both the prettiest and the "warmest" to type on. It has "Majik" (with a nod to Sandy1)
I count my blessings that I am lucky enough to have amassed such a beautiful bunch.
