    1. I like it. It is no different from the regular Hermes 6, which means, the usual Swiss quality of the time. The only minus would be carriage shift, as the platen part is quite heavy.
      This machine really looked old and battered. But mechanically it is in very good state, and after writing a page one really gets into the rhythm.
