PAYMENT IS DUE WITHIN 3 DAYS. WINNING BIDDER, PLEASE SEE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW. Check out my other auctions and save $$$ on shipping. Up for auction is a Vintage Hermes Manual Adding Machine. Machine appears to be in very good working condition. I am not familiar with the hand crank adding machines, so please ask any questions you may have if you are familiar with this type of machine and I miss something. The only issue I see to note is the piece that holds the roll of paper in has been substituted with a long screw and bolt. Paper moves just fine with this substitution. Printing appears to be working fine, also (see pic #8). Machine is marked: Hermes-Precisa...Model 109-10...Serial No. OB34609...Made in West Germany. I don't see any chips, cracks or repairs to the machine. I believe this machine dates to the 1950's-1960's. HEAVY ITEM. Everything I sell is previously owned, so cleaning/polishing of items is always left up to the new owner.
PLEASE READ FINE PRINT BORING BUT NECESSARY IF YOU INTEND TO BID. WHAT I SELL: 99.9% of what I sell is vintage or used and should be judged accordingly. A new item will be stated as such. All condition descriptions are solely the opinion of myself and what I see, so please be responsible and ask any and all questions you may feel are pertinent to that item. I am more than happy to answer them. I may leave something of importance out simply because I don’t know. I buy what I think is interesting, unique or useful not because I’m an expert on that item. Items I list will ALWAYS show signs of normal age and wear unless I state otherwise. 30-50 year old items will rarely ever look like it just came off a store shelf. People used their things. However, I will always do my best to point out any flaws such as: cracks, hairlines, chips, repairs, tears, stains, etc. Pictures posted or requested are considered part of the description. Questions answered below are also considered part of the description, so please scroll down past the posted pictures to see if potential bidders have asked anything. Please try and ask questions at least 24 hours before ending time. I start packing items 24 hours before ending date and I may have to go off memory or I may not be able to answer the question at all. EVERYTHING IS SOLD IN “AS FOUND” CONDITION.
