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:

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

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.

IMHO a 1970/80 Waterman/Cross with no hallmark is plated if that.

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??
