SORRY, SOLD! 1958 Hermes Baby Typewriter
  • SORRY, SOLD! 1958 Hermes Baby Typewriter


    Hermes is one of the most renowned brands and models of typewriter ever made, and this is a nice example of the "Baby" model, also known as the "Rocket", from 1958. This is the perfect portable typing machine, weighing only ~3.6kg/8 lbs! This typewriter is in fine condition, mechanically and cosmetically, and has been thoroughly cleaned, serviced, adjusted and aligned. It is a typing machine that is ready to work for another 60 years of typing service. And with its brilliant Hermes engineering, it does that with elegance, smoothness and solidity.

    Like all of our typewriters this is a fully-working typewriter. It comes with the "Acme" lead certification seal attached to the typewriter which permanently identifies it as a genuine Acme-restored typewriter and provides for a one-year warranty. 

    The keyboard is a QWERTY keyboard (English language) and has a very interesting and unusually small typeface of Hermes Elite (13 cpi). It has been fitted with a vintage silk ribbon so you can start typing immediately.  

    The only blemishes to note on the typewriter are some light spots of corrosion on the paper bail.
    The case/cover is in beautiful condition both inside and out with one tiny blemish on one corner. 

    We guarantee safe delivery and provide careful and attentive after-purchase advice and assistance from the date of purchase to the end of eternity to ensure your full satisfaction. In terms of an investment, the Acme Seal proves that this machine was restored by the Acme Type Machine Company. This can add value in the event that you wish to sell this typewriter in the future. 

    This fine example of a Hermes Baby will be packed and shipped with the greatest care to preserve its condition and beauty. We have a lot of experience in shipping typewriters and have an excellent track record for proper packing and safe delivery.
