Hermes 3000 Mint Green Portable Typewriter (1960s)

It's about time I added a few machines to the "For Sale" section, so I'll start off with this Hermes 3000. Beautiful machine in great condition, but I have two of them and not very much space.

It has a Swiss-French QWERTZ keyboard, and everything is intact and well-preserved - platen knobs, paper support, feed rollers, etc. Really pristine.

In July, I wrote a thorough description of the Hermes 3000/ Media 3 family here.

The typeface on this machine is Pica, 10 characters per inch.

 And here it is, in the matching clamshell case. If interested, contact details are at the bottom of this page.


  1. What a lovely machine. Please email at vantolar (at) yahoo (dot) com I'm looking to purchase one.
