I have discovered two brand new bottles of discontinued Caran d'Ache ink (they probably sat there in the store for a few years, on the edge of the shelf partly covered, mostly out of sight)

Now is the question, do they have any worth for collectors?

 

Because I can't find anything about them on eBay or the likes, probably not much left. If they got a significant value increase from what I bought them for I might consider selling them off again, otherwise probably use them myself as they are my favorite colors green&purple.

 

There was a bottle of saffron and carbon too but the bottles are pretty pricy and I'm not a big fan of orange/black so if it's nothing with value then I'd be stuck with those :D

I'm still looking for help/data/supporters/sponsors for my Ink Database - It already contains over 900 Inks but is still low on data about the inks except on the Inks I got myself or where I found nice data sheets. So Im looking for these: InkSamples mailed to me, Permissions to use InkReviews - preferable by people who have a lot of InkReviews online, InkReviews mailed to me so I can scan them, Sponsors that will help me to finance InkSamples, People willing to trade InkSamples (list of available Inks from me is available via PM request - please include available Inks)

Yes but a lot more pricy than expected... saw them the last time, saw the sticker price of 5€/bottle on the shelf, at home I noticed that 5€ is pretty great for a discontinued ink... went back today just to discover there are stickers on the bottles itself with a liiiiitle bit higher price on them... would have bought all of them for the 5€ price tag... and would have paid a lot less  :unsure:

5€ is a damn good price for them, I got one from the old line for 20$... And that was only a Blue Sky... Okay, the bottle is really lovely, so eventually kind of worth it.

If they would have been 5€ that would have been great, that's what was written on the shelf itself but it referenced the old non-colors of the earth CdA inks. These did cost a hefty sum more, but since these are pretty much completely unavailable I took them anyway.
