Needing to sign legal documents, so grabbed my ESSR,
The problem with having just about enough inks is in my case, is asking my self which are permanent, in I go for shading inks mostly.
Having re-read this whole thread the day before yesterday, I knew I had to ink a pen with ESSR.
I have three Geha 790's...two with the first cap, 60s-66, one semi-flex 14 K KM and one 'flexi' (to my surprise; expected a semi-flex) 14 K EF.
The second cap, is from @ '59-60, with the true three rings of the 790. It is a semi-flex 14 K M also. More a F-M than a M even for vintage.
For semi-flex nibs the Geha 790 is a good pen, not too expensive if bought on German Ebay. PM me if you want a German cheat sheet so you can navigate around in a foreign tongue. German Ebay is cheaper than US for German pens.
This did clean up better than the ebay picture.
I had fun at the post office...they 'know' me there the pen nut...showed off the pen and how ESSR changed color.

Everyone says poor Mozart dead at only 36. None say poor Mendelson, dead at only 38. His family only allowed him to start at 20, but before, musicians use to come to the Mendelson garden to steal the music of Mendelson and his sister. A good artist also, can still buy prints of his famous Scottish drawings in Scotland.
