Hermes Media 3 - the dividing line

... in search of the dividing line. contributions welcome. i was most happy to find these two machines at two weeks distance only - long live Hermesland.

Update 27 Sept. 2014: I forgot to add that the dividing line is the same for the Hermes 3000 and the Hermes Media 3 (it is pretty safe to assume that both variants came on the market at the same time, and share serial numbers).
Plus, we are closing in on the gap: currently, my #3'351'271 is still the highest "round" one, and D. Johnson's #3'357'754 is the lowest "boxy" one.

ok, once more:

and Rob, here's the hood:

  1. I too would like to know when the change took place. My first H3k was a boxy 1966 (3306010) and my second one was a round one also from 1966 (3345436).

  2. Love them both. It's interesting that the rounder typewriter has the boxier case. :)

  3. I'm sorry for being backwards, I interchanged the numbers, 3360610 is the serial number for the square one.
