So I finally won a teal M nib P51 in my limited budget. Yay! :bunny01: Except I got my auctions mixed up. :rolleyes: What I actually won is a blue B nib P51 Special. :headsmack: I thought Bs were rare. Hopefully it is actually a F or M so I can use it. My last B when to Ghost Plane...

Posting due to extreme baby induced insomnia. Which might have something to with the above.

Yeah, never bid on eBay if you are tired or have been drinking.

Ribbet - B nibs are so rare on P51's unless made in England. If it is a B nib and you don't want it, I will be happy to consider getting it from you! Spread the B's around! I've been hunting for one for a long while. What color is it? Full size or Demi?

Hope you get some sleep soon!

Only if you are painting walls.... LOL

I have a classical Parochial school handwriting and anything bigger than a fine is too big for my style... I can comfortably write on 5x5 Rhodia graph paper and stay in the lines

House painting,why didn't I think of that? ;)But I've gone from xf only to using MF so maybe the B will work. Should be here in a couple days.
