  • SORRY, SOLD! 1963 Hermes 3000 Typewriter


    This is an extraordinarily fine and beautiful HERMES 3000, one of the most renowned brands of typewriter ever made! And this is an exceptional example from 1963. It has the Hermes Techno typeface which is particularly beautiful and much sought after by users and collectors. It is in near-perfect condition, mechanically and cosmetically, and has been thoroughly cleaned, serviced, adjusted and aligned. This Hermes 3000 comes with its original, Hermes-branded cleaning brushes, and case/cover with the original key. This is a typing machine that is ready to work for many good years of typing service. And with its brilliant Hermes engineering, it does that with elegance, smoothness and solidity.


    Acme typewriters have been the choice of discerning collectors and writers more than 1,000 times since we began selling online in 2016. We safely ship your typewriter from our store in the Netherlands and delivery time to the US averages only 3 days—this is a quicker delivery time even than most domestic shipments within the US! Acme typewriters are guaranteed to arrive safely at your door, are covered by a 1-year warranty, and come with lifetime customer-care.

    With an ACME Typewriter, you know you are getting a fully-working--as original--typewriter. The only thing that you have to do is sit down, put paper on the roller and start typing. Your typewriter comes with the "Acme" lead certification seal which permanently identifies it as a genuine Acme-restored typewriter and provides for a one-year warranty at no charge. In terms of an investment, the Acme Seal proves that this machine was restored in 2023 by the Acme Type Machine Company. This can add value in the event that you wish to sell this typewriter in the future.


    Overall, this typewriter is in superb condition. The cosmetic condition is excellent with only a very few spots of wear. The chrome and aluminium are in superb condition with no signs of corrosion. The keys are clean and unmarked by use. Both platen roller knobs are absolutely solid. 

    Mechanically, it is in superb working condition. The paper feeder rollers are in perfect condition and soft. The feet are in excellent condition, soft and still grip the desktop well. All mechanical devices (including, but not exclusive of, the ribbon colour selection mechanism, ribbon advance and reverse mechanisms, margin release, etc.) have been checked and adjusted as necessary, and work as originally manufactured. Everything on this typewriter is original to its manufacture and original purchase.


    The case/cover is in excellent condition. The chrome pieces are shiny and bright and the handle is clean and intact. The interior is in near-perfect condition with all chrome pieces unblemished. The two, original brushes -- one Hermes-branded -- are in excellent condition.


    The keyboard has accent keys for foreign languages. The typeface is Hermes Techno with 11 characters to the inch. 


    This superb example of a Hermes 3000 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. It will be fully insured for shipment.
