Let's play a game:

 

Whoever can guess my first PIF, gets the pen. Ask me a question for clue answerable by yes or no. You can keep asking as long as I say Yes until you score a hit. If I reply No, you're out! One person at a time. If you win, I'll gladly mail it for free. On your mark, get set, go...

 

Hint: I'm 62 and I'm older than the pen.

Is it a Pelikan M800?  Why did I guess that?  Because I tried one out at the Vancouver Pen Store when I was there a couple of months ago and I believe it may be the perfect pen for me... size, weight, balance, how wet the nib was... :wub:... in other words, maybe wishing for my dream pen will make it happen... like in a movie.... :D

I'm changing the rules  of engagement. It's now free for all. Three strikes you're out. You may ask all 3 questions in one post but if you get 3 "NO" answers you're out; if you get 1 or 2 "NO", you could stil ask another question later on.I didn't expect some would PM me for the Y/N questions. I wanted everyone to see all the questions and my answers, so everyone could zero in to the identity of the mystery pen.

   So far the questions (and my answers) have been:

I'm gonna start off with a wild guess because I can - Is it a Parker 51?

No, it's not a Parker 51. I'm not giving away my Plum.

Is it not Japanese?

No, not Japanese. I don't have a Nakaya.

Is it made by an american Brand?

Yes, used to be American.

Does the brand or model name have at least 1 "e"?

Yes.

Can you buy a vowel before choosing a consonant? Alex, could we get a ruling?

I don't know, I'm not Alex. Let Alex answer it.

Is it a pen made by an American company? (i.e Sheaffer)

Yes, Sheaffer has more than 2 "e"s.

Is it a Pelikan M800?

No, you're not paying attention.

I think it's a Parker 61.

That's not even a question and you're not paying attention either.

So the pen is made by Sheaffer?

Yes, how did you guess that?

 

Enough, I think we have enough clues. For those who got a strike, I'm issuing a clemency. All scores are reset to zero, Please don't PM me or post your questions somewhere. Post them here only (and only in this thread) so everyone could see. Wait for my answers to the questions before you ask another. Wait for your turn. Good luck!

You're sneaky, No, not a prelude. Strike 2, 1 to go.

I lost one Imperial 330, bought another. I like its extra fine lines. Not an Imperial. I said earlier in response to kvz that it's same family as a Vintage Old Timer.
