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!”
