judging from the final sale price, a buck a key certainly made key chopping worthwhile for them.  now it makes me afraid that they will find this more profitable than selling the whole machine.  how sad.

I'm not very addicted. Except I picked up another Hermes 3000 this last week. Now I have, hmm, maybe 12? If you don't know how many typewriters you have, kind of like not knowing how many gin bottles are around the house, you might have a problem.

if I had no storage restraints to my collecting, I would keep buying Hermes 3000's in all different typefaces.  I simply love that machine!

omg, I just saw one of those at our local swap meet/flea market.  it was just sitting on the ground surrounded by gardening stuff.  I didn't know what it was so I just walked on.

14 and I haven't been collecting for that long.  I search out typeface first, brand second.

I have an eyelet setter and some eyelets so I could just as easily add some if I got ribbon that didn't have any

Welcome Bare Foot---what a great homage to your dad. My homage to my dad would be one of the IBM Selectrics that he collects and loves using.

I don't know why they were used but I certainly love using purple ribbon especially in my script typewriters.  it add a bit of whimsy to whatever I'm typing.
