Vintage Hermes 3000 portable typewriter..1963...SOLD









There was great excitement when I came across this teal green typewriter!  My favourite colour!  If you take a closer look at the photos you will see a small silver plaque above the keys -
TO JOHN
AS A TOKEN OF OUR ESTEEM
FROM YOUR COLLEAGUES OF
THE TIMBER TRADE FEDERATION (NATAL BRANCH)
SEPTEMBER 1963
This  typewriter was serviced in 1990 by SOMCO, Swiss Office Machinery Co. Ltd. - see photos.  I am sure new ribbons are still available and can be rolled onto the existing reels. (My son did this for a typewriter he bought for his girlfriend.) The typewriter overall is in good condition but if you wish to use it I suggest having it serviced and fit a new ribbon.
Unfortunately it has had a knock to the front base of the typewriter but the lid still fits and locks fine.
Dimensions: width: 33cm  height: 13cm   depth: 34cm

Condition: see photos
Price: R340  SOLD
