Typewriter, 1957 Hermes 2000 portable

This Hermes 2000 typewriter was made in 1957 and is in a stunning pale green colour with mint green keys , carriage knobs and space bar .Hermes typewriters were designed and made in Switzerland by Paillard before production moved to Germany and then to Brazil . They have a good reputation as wonderfully engineered and made machines , as you would expect from the Swiss .This one was made in Switzerland and is in full working order and types very well .It has the slightly larger "Pica " sized font giving you 10 letters to the inch.

This typewriter has been professionally cleaned ,serviced, adjusted and tested . It is in full working order and is fitted with a new Group 9 ribbon on metal spools so its all ready for you to start typing on !

We can supply Group 9 typewriter ribbons at $12.50 each including postage. Available in plain black, red/black, blue and purple. A ribbon will last you a long time and to give you an idea , in an office environment with someone using a typewriter professionally a ribbon would last them around 3 months . 

 

It is in a good general condition for its age ,with just some small marks and discolouration to the paintwork on the body in places mainly at the front corners , on the carriage and the back plate . The silver chrome work is also in a very nice condition . It has the Hermes 2000 logo in silver on the front , the Hermes logo and the manufactures details on the back. 

 We include a copy of an original instruction booklet for the Hermes 2000 showing all its features and giving tips such as changing the ribbon. The body of the typewriter  measures 27 cms by 30 cms by 12 cms high and comes with a smart green carry case . It has an internal file for papers .The case is also in a good  functional condition but does have  some signs of wear, marks , discolouration and  the back left corner of the interior lining is torn . The handle and clasp to close work well and the carry case is fully functional.
