The first one is an interesting Frankenpen

 

He says it had an accident and he planted the glass nib. He makes clear it will not work with the cartridge any more (dip nib).

 

The pen may be interesting for parts...

 

 

The second, indeed :headsmack:

Yes but they seem to buy from him/her. I once asked a question but received no reply so I no longer bother opening the auctions. But yes over $400 for a 512V well.

It seems this seller is using a quite well known technic ... : putting nice items on sales at a very high price (just to show he's got stuff), so that the day he will put a pen on sale at a "normal" price, people will jump on it ...

This is well worth a viewing, not only because of the price :lticaptd: but the description, I never knew so much could be said about a Phili.

I am too scared to use it as it's a £150 pencil...which in reality is a £29 Hemi pencil.

200 GBP??? I can get a new Cross Century 18kt gold filled for 150 EUR..... And this thing awfully looks like a Cross Century, only with a Waterman text on the clip.

 

Did Waterman make Centuries for Cross? Or vice versa??

Priced and described to deceive...

 

when informed it was plated the seller said it's up to the viewer to decide if it's solid gold or plated hhhuuuuuuuuuuuuu.

Possibly as a writer it is in good condition. But you could say this pen has seen some use.....

 

Sofar for the price you can't say anything against it.

 

Someone could get a nice 18k replacement nib out of it.

Thank you.  We all need a little levity now and then.
