Vintage 1966 Hermes 3000 Two-Tone Typewriter - Working - Great Condition - Seafoam Green with Mint Keys

224.99

Wonderful version of one of the most sought-after writer's typewriters. This is a Hermes 3000, in wonderful two-tone seafoam and mint green keys. One of the smoothest-typing machines ever made, and one with a ton of functionality. Made in Switzerland.

This typewriter is in great condition, both cosmetically and mechanically. Cosmetically, the typewriter does show some age, including a few nicks in the paint around the base - and the previous owner seems to carved some kind of serial number into both the key cover (see pic 4) and onto the case. Otherwise the machine is quite clean - and the bright green keys pop against the more muted mint green body. 

Mechanically, the machine is in good working order. The only mechanical condition to note is that it is missing the knob on the right side of the platen. This does not affect the functionality of the typewriter as you can use the knob on the left, but should be noted. I have replaced the carriage strap (the piece that helps the carriage move along as you type) and have cleaned and lubricated the keys. The ribbon does have some life, though I will be happy to include an extra brand-new ribbon so you can keep typing to your heart's content. 

Comes with original snap-on hard case, and I have printed out a copy of the owner's manual. 

I make good faith efforts to describe my items accurately. Please look at photos carefully (encourage use of the zoom!) and fully read the descriptions prior to purchase, and feel free to contact me at any time with any questions you might have, or if you would like to see any additional photos. 

I do my best to estimate shipping costs - if you would like to combine with other items or just do a free local pickup, just let me know before you purchase any items. If the difference between what I request for postage and what the actual cost is happens to be more than $2, I will refund the difference. If requesting international shipment, please contact me beforehand and I can estimate costs to your country. 

Let me know if you have any questions and thank you!
