Only $.99 cents for a working HERO and slide converter, including free shipping from China to NY/USA?
Man, what a bargain!
You made out on that deal, probably cost several times that just to ship to you!.
No pics of the pen but the writing sample looks OK, I think, can't really tell as the Bay State Blue looks all pixelated on the paper in this scan.
Not sure if that's what the writing looks like [kinda doubt it, really], if it somehow lost sharpness in the translation or just the scan not catching the edges properly when converted to .pdf format or what.
Anyway, congrats on what seems to be a great find, filling a blue enameled metal pen with BSB seems like the right choice as well.
“I view my fountain pens & inks as an artist might view their brushes and paints.
They flow across paper as a brush to canvas, transforming my thoughts into words and my words into art.
There is nothing else like it; the art of writing and the painting of words!”

The writing sample looks better when you resize to "actual size."

In the future, please provide the content in the post body, rather than solely embedded in a PDF document. Otherwise, none of the content can be found via FPN search. Thanks...
