If you buy that, it's a closed deal.

This is a Graduate missing from my collection and I have sent three messages to determine the nib size. Not that I really care what it is but just to see if the seller, as a new ebayer, answers questions. I have had no replies to date. So this morning I messaged them telling them their listing error...for the hell of it maybe. :angry:

A rare opportunity.  Too bad they don't post to USA.

I haven't seen one like that before.  Too bad I haven't used a pen since my last day of work last Friday.

Seller is a bit Wishy Washy.

 

Title says Waterman, description Parker. Shall we settle at Sanford??

 

Picture was too unclear for me to decide.

A 1st generation Gentleman prototype?

Force:

Is that catalog from 1983?

You don't happen to have any like that from the mid-1970s, do you, or know where I can get one? I'd like to find one from 1975 and 1980, if I can.

Also, I'll have to check, but the converter I got with my Royal Jordanian Gentleman looks very much like the all plastic one, except that it is all metal.

And, finally, I think I have seen my Grail Pen! The Man 100 Prestige #16014!! To me it looks like it's white lacquer, but the description seems to say that it is sterling silver. I'm in love!

It's 1987 as shown on the price list. I have the Tortoiseshell Executive 17079 which was given to me in 1986.

 

Sorry I only have much later catalogues. Maybe Damien or Nathalie can help.

 

Please post a pic of the converter.

 

The Prestige shown is described as sterling silver.

I was wrong, the converter has a plastic plunger. Note the funky 1960s style lettering imprinted on the plunger.

Sorry, I have no more catalogs.

The 16014 is the Man 100 Solid Sterling Silver, smooth finish. Matte when it is new without yet contact with skin, then glossy when used.

Oh, I am so in love with that pen, it hurts, deeply. It's like one of my beloved Gentlemen on steroids. The silver. The gold. Wow!

As far as my converter goes, it feels much older than 1987, mainly because of the text style, reminds me of the "mod" writing of the 1960-1970s with all the curves and rounded edges. I think I will not be using any of my iron gall inks in it.

Thank you for your info.

It is not okay to say how much I love a pen I've never seen before and find to be beautiful? If so, my apologies.

Of course it is okay...

 

It is just an unexpected reaction is this topic. And, although I normally don't like all metal pens (apart from Flighters) this one is an exception (not the pen) And I like it as well.

It does teach us a good lesson...don't handle anything that's Matte to much otherwise it could become Glossy :blush:

 

Is this good enough to guide us back to chuckling....

Thanks, guys!  I was just blown away by that beautiful pen.  I know this thread is meant to highlight the ridiculous eBay offers out there.  Now let's get back to the serious busniess of incredulity.
