Before the green: the 1939 (black) Hermes Media… a simplified 2000

It may be a simplified Hermes 2000, but it is one sweet machine.  I like the logo on the right side (not sure what it is) but it looks cool. From what I’ve read when this was introduced in 1936 it lacked a back space key and ribbon selector (both added by 1939).  Also on the 2000 in the rear was a knob for adjusting velocity.
