Professionally refurbished in near mint condition. I have been servicing Hermes typewriters for over 60 years and was a Hermes dealer and service when I owned my typewriter shop. I have personally refurbished this beauty and replaced the platen and ribbon. Hermes platens do not age well and should always be changed. Everything is original, nothing has been changed or replaced with the exception of the platen and ribbon.It is rare to find a Hermes in this wonderful condition and with all the factory extras including the cleaning brushes, owners manual and case key. I can find no signs of ware as this was very lightly used and well cared for. It doesn't get much better than this, the worlds finest portable typewriter in near mint condition, fully restored, with a one year guarantee. Has very desirable Director Pica type style, 10 characters per inch.
