DESCRIPTION

Great for travel or small spaces! 1954 Hermes Rocket travel typewriter. Metal snap-on top. Make sure to unfold handle before using and re-fold before putting the cover back on. This does show some signs of wear with chipping and fading (please see the images). We decided to keep the original paint/wear.

As far as functionality, it feels very nice on the fingers. Prefers a slower, deliberate pace even though it is very smooth and I didn’t feel any hesitation. The typeface show some uneven imprinting, please see the typing sample image, but overall is still good.

Has round black keys that I usually find on an older Royal standard typewriter. Batwing spool covers. Black only ribbon. We’ve installed new ribbon for you.

Also, while it is easy to type, you do need a heavier hand so don’t be timid when typing.

Please be sure to look at the photos closely and watch the typing DEMO video and the typewriter TUTORIAL videos. Remember, we SERVICE our typewriters. We do NOT Restore or Refurbish. We get the typewriters to a working condition using original parts.

REMEMBER, YOU ARE PURCHASING A VINTAGE ITEM! This typewriter is over 67 years old! It is not perfect but is in good working condition.

We CLEAN, SERVICE, REPAIR, & TEST all our typewriters, and they come with a new ribbon installed.

I recommend using a dust cover when not in use.
