**SOLD** thank you buyer & FPN
 
Up for sale a Dupont Shanghai LE 2009 Neo-Classique President fountain pen (L=164mm capped). Special edition model purchased new in Singapore in 2013 (at Dickson watch/jewelry store in Orchard Road). Only 1,088 of these were made in year 2009, with 288 being included in a set with ink, special box, etc. This sale refers to the pen only, but a very special leather cigar style case with Chinese inscription outside and lace fasteners is included (not Dupont brand). Fits the pen perfectly. Serial number: 0066/1088.
 
Dupont gold nib ‘M’, the filling system is cartridge/converter. The closing system is push-pull. No case, no papers, leather case is sound and beautiful. Lacquer ‘rain’ on the cap combines well with an added filigree metallic part of “waves” on the bottom. The black lacquer is ornamented by a subtle pale gold effect. Clip of the pen is set with eight citrine pens, which in China are believed to have healing properties. Bottom of the pen is engraved with the Shanghai logo.
 
I acquired this pen, together with many others, over the course of ten years during which work took me from North Europe to South Korea and then Singapore (2008-2018).
 
The condition of the pen is like new. I have used it very very little, couple of times only for a few minutes each time. The nib performs exceptionally, no issues whatsoever, the push-pull mechanism of the cap is soft as butter yet with the original and proper friction and resistance. Please note that the gold trim is much more yellowish and vibrant in real life than what the pictures have captured.
 
Pen has been cared for very well, always kept in containers with desiccants for humidity regulation. Comes from a smoke-free home. At my apartment in Singapore I also had three dehumidifiers in order to keep all hobby equipment in perfect order. This is a very large pen, it offers spectacular feeling in the hand, on the heavy side but thoroughly balanced, but it obviously is not for daily or very frequent use.
 
Due to work practicalities (I visit ships and shipyards often) I do not use fountain pens much for some years now and have no further interest in retaining a small collection. I will keep three or four pens from those I possess but the rest will gradually have to go. I wholeheartedly wish for those who purchase them to enjoy them.
 
I have been very active since late ‘00s in many other forums, but mainly in U.K./U.S. wet shaving forums from December 2009 I did have extremely strong presence with hundreds of sales and trades conducted. Therefore I can be very specific if needs to be, with solid references.
 
If more pictures are needed, or if there is any other question, please do send me a message and I will get back to you shortly. I am at present located in Athens, Greece and therefore I ship from this end with Registered/tracked Post Office service.
 
Asking U.S. $1100, includes tracked shipping; PayPal.
 
Thanks for reading and thank you FPN.
