A truly incredible Hermes 3000 typewriter...
A truly incredible Hermes 3000 typewriter that is beautifully restored in perfect working order. As much as I was awe struck when I saw the typewriter I was equally in awe at how amazingly fast the shipping was given the distance. I was guided every step of the way in the needs of a typewriter and surprised with the accessories it came with. Thank you so much for everything!
My experience with Bilyana & Amsterdam Typ...
My experience with Bilyana & Amsterdam Typewriter has been hands down the pinnacle of any experience I have had in all my 45 years when it comes to the exchange of goods & services. This fully restored Hermes 3000 typewriter arrived in gorgeous condition with not so much as a single finger print on it. The packaging was as intricate as a thought—just remarkably taken care of. In this package was beautifully detailed documentation, certificates, instructions, typing paper, cleaning kit, extra ribbon. This typewriter traveled all the way from 1960, to the Netherlands, and then all the way to southern California. Throughout this incredible journey Bilayana was with it and me the entire time. The machine is a masterpiece of care and consideration. Bilyana is someone who astonishes me with her brilliance. Thank You.
