Hermes 3000 Portable (1960)

SKU: HEM30006020624

A nice example of this iconic Swiss portable, manufactured in 1960 with original seafoam green paintwork and light green keytops. The machine has been fully serviced in our workshop with a new ribbon fitted, and writes beautifully with a nice clear standard elite 12 typestyle. It is a lovely typewriter to use with it's light touch to the keyboard, and being the earlier model has the classic rounded styling to the casings, which gives this portable a great retro look. There are a few chips to the paintwork caused by general wear and tear, but overall it is in very good condition. The machine is supplied with the original clip on carry case with key, and a copy of user instructions.  Nowadays this model is highly sought after due to it's superb design, and the actor Tom Hanks who is an avid collector of over 250 typewriters says this is his most favourite model.

Replacement ribbons for this machine are available to order on our website. (Group 9 )
