Oh, and if I might add I'd just like your two cents. Which of the two colors (solid) is considered rarer: pink or violet? Or is it just a matter of preference?

I've seen several pink NN pens, but never a violet version in the flesh.

Thanks! Always wondered about that. Yet another lesson for me in "if you see it and you like it, don't hesitate."
By the way, the thumbnail photo you use is wonderful.

Thanks! That photo was a complete surprise when I took it back in March.

I just ordered my first NN for Rs. 399 ($6.49) from here. (no affiliation) The website has no pictures, so it might help to go to this link to decide which colour you want. Happy buying! :)

I like the No Nonsense.  It is an efficient and reliable fountain pen.  That it is inexpensive, made it 

popular for advertising, etc.  British Airways, Basketballs, and other neat themes.  I also bought 

up a couple of dozen "discontinued" PINK ones.  It is an ugly pink, but nobody complains about 

the performance.  Kept two for myself.
