My friend gave me this pen a while ago. I dont know anything about fountain pens.
Her parents imigrated from Japan to Brazil many years ago, I think in the 60's or 70's. Her father had many pens, unused. So, she gave me one as a gift,many years ago. I tried to research, it seems that the body of the pen could have been made of some sort of amazon Toad Leather, I can't be sure. I would love to get more information about this pen.
The point of the pen is in Gold, and it has etched "18K" and has a P and some japanese characters.
The pen has a plastic blue piece in the point, as shown in the picture, and I was wondering what that ? Is this something I should remove or not?
So my question is....is this pen valuable or collectible? Or just some regular pen?
I haven't used..but I'm probably going to fill with ink if is not valuable. Thank you guys.
