Okay, this Ebay offer will end in mere hours. It APPEARS to be a Phileas in a unique shade of green, but it lacks the "cigar band" in any of the photos. All other metal is the gold color that marks a Phileas. Is this a gold-plated Kultur? (I'm sorry that this will be a moot point before many of the experienced hands here at FPN see this.) I love a mystery...but not enough to buy a suspicious pen. Anyone? -- TwelveDrawings
BTW, the seller makes a point of calling this a "Vintage" Phileas....dating back as far as the 1990s. If that is "vintage", then I am prehistoric. I suppose everything is relative.
Indeed a Kultur. One of the rarer colors.
There are many Kulturs with all gold plate nibs and gold trim, including a blind cap ring. But a Kultur never has the cigar band, lower cap ring or two tone nib. Phileas always has the cigar band and cap ring, and would have originally been equipped with a two tone nib.
There is no such thing as a Phileas demonstrator, nor any kind of translucent Phileas. (maybe I should make one)
