  • SORRY, SOLD! 1967 Hermes Baby Typewriter—The perfect super-portable!


    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 1967. This is the perfect portable typing machine, weighing only ~3.6kg/8 lbs! This typewriter is in lovely 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.

    The keyboard is a QWERTY keyboard, with keys for other European languages, and has a typeface of Hermes Elite (11 cpi). It has been fitted with a new ribbon so you can start typing immediately.  

    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 shipments from-and-to a US address! In the last 7 years, our typewriters arrived damage-free 99.4% of the time. So please don’t be concerned about buying from us just because we seem far away. Acme typewriters 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. 



    The typewriter is in very nice condition. The platen is smooth and clean and the rubber feet have been replaced with new ones in order to grip the desktop well while typing. The platen knobs are in perfect, solid condition.

    We provide a one year mechanical warranty and careful and attentive after-purchase advice and assistance from the date of purchase to the end of eternity to ensure your full satisfaction. 

    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.
