Gorgeous Hermes 3000 typewriter with carrying case

Manufactured beginning in 1958, the Hermes 3000 is in a class of its own. It is widely regarded as one of the best portable typewriters ever made. It was the last typewriter used by Jack Kerouac and is a must have for a collector.

The Hermes 3000 has has an heavy, solid sea foam green body with a lid that locks onto the base and functions as a carrying case. The typewriter has many sophisticated features like lightning margins, an integrated base plate and cover, a control board grouping all the service keys, and intricate controls.

Comes with the case, and two original cleaning brushes.

measures 14 x 12.5 x 6 inches

In very good vintage condition. All keys work smoothly and there is no body damage. Will need new ribbon and could use a cleaning and servicing if it will be in continuous use. The case exterior has light staining, the typewriter itself also has some marks of wear and stains, but these are minimal and most can be seen in the pictures provided.
