I have some new pens for sale along with the Dollar pens I have sold here for some time. The new pens are the well known Reform 1745 and a slightly bigger Reform, the P 120. Both are NOS.

The Dollar Student pen is still on sale for 3.00 $ as long as my stock lasts. I have also reduced the price for the Dollar SP-10 to 5.00 $.

Shipping

Shipping fees start from 3.00 €. I calculate the costs based on the total weight of the shipment so PM me for a quote before ordering. I do not overcharge shipping costs.

Shipping is always with fast Priority Mail.

To order:
PM me and I will give you a quote including shipping costs and my PayPal account address. You can also reach me with direct email. I am smeden717 at hotmail.com.

All prices are in U.S. dollars. Please contact me for a quote in euros if you are in Europe.

The small print
The Reform pens are NOS and have been stored for more than 30 years. Some of the pistons are a bit stiff and not as smooth as a new piston. This is more typical with the 1745 than with the P 120. Luckily this is easy to fix with the 1745 by lubricating the piston with a very small amount of silicone grease. I do this with every 1745 unless you specify that you don't want it lubed.

I don't know how to do this on the P 120 because the nib and feed are not easy to remove. Luckily these pistons are not so stiff but Noodlers eel ink would certainly do good to these pens.

Please flush all Reform and Dollar pens with luke warm water before filling them with ink.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.

The Student Pen has a medium and the Demonstrator has a fine nib but the later could also be described as a fine medium.

The Reform 1745 has a fine nib but I am not sure how the P 120 nib is marked. I would say that it is fine like the 1745 nib but this is only my personal view based on trying one single pen. Fine here means European fine that is wider than for instance the Chinese fine nibs.

I hope this is at least to some help.

Very much, thank you! I'm sending you a PM for one Dollar demonstrator and one each of the Reforms.

Got my box of Dollars today fast and well packaged.

Thanks!

Got my reforms yesterday. Yay, they arrived before spring break!

They write very nice and will be fun to use.

I am a Pelikan, Montblanc, Sailor, and Visconti user, OK, but I am not ashamed to recognize that I also have samples of all these cheap pens. The dollars in particular I bought from the OP, smeden, and my favourites are the transparent demonstrators-- I cannot help getting perplexed by how good these cheap pens write. I have two dollars around my desk at any time. No worries about dropping them or misplace them. I would also recommend the 717 calligraphy pen. It is like no other calligraphy or italic pen I have, it gives an "asian italic" instead of the conventional "western italic", very nice indeed.

How does it differ?
