I'd like to see a flat top, a Huron grande or Huron.

The Mina and Extended Mina are getting a lot of love in this thread... I'll throw my support in for either one of those, too. Extended would be my preference.

It may not be an issue for some, but remember that the Mina takes a #5 nib rather than a #6 like most of the Edisons. That means that the nib would only be interchangeable with the Pearlette and the Encore. (And a few of the Franklin Christoph models)

I would love an extended pearl. Black ebonite, silver trim, clip or clipless. Missed out on the last one.

A Mina with fatter section and a #6 nib would be interesting.

I half-guessed the Mina would be an issue for people given the nib size. Not sure how likely a second LE Pearl would be tbh, given the nature of it being LE.

A flat top would be a nice choice also.

Brian does make Edison Minas that will fit a #6 nib; I have seen pictures. It has the same shape as regular Minas, just bigger. Perhaps Brian would be willing to offer it as a group buy option.

I'm hoping for a #76 signature model.

I don't care for the #5 nibs on the Mina.

And, I prefer clips on my pens.

I would be OK with a 76...anything but a Huron, Collier or Morgan, I have those. But even then...I'll got with what the group wants and what Brian is willing to offer. What was the model last time?I have been eyeing the Herald.

Double ended? If a Mina, definitly extended, solid color. Lucite could be very nice too...

A Mina with fatter section and a #6 nib would be interesting.

 

That would be the ticket to push me over the edge and JUMP right in !!!

A flat top would be a nice choice also.

 

For me it's more the thin section than the small nib. But then, a pen with a thicker section might as well have the bigger nib.

 

Brian does make Edison Minas that will fit a #6 nib; I have seen pictures. It has the same shape as regular Minas, just bigger. Perhaps Brian would be willing to offer it as a group buy option.

 

Interesting. It shouldn't surprise me, but I didn't know Brian had made such pens.

I'd consider it, depending on the pen.  I'll keep a eye here.

I'd like to add my voice to the pre-group buy lobbying effort on behalf of the Mina, - Standard, Extended, or BOTH.  I've always been attracted to the clean silhouette of Mina, that clipless beauty.  Should be easier to make too, - less parts.
