Not a new color but some cool Safari ephemera.

(This is one of the most complete threads about the SAFARI. t

That's why I thought this picture should not miss here.)

Being new to collecting LAMY Safari pens, I have enjoyed reading and learning from this thread.

Thank you all who have contributed.

While talking about the Safari, I just got this nice sticker in my mailbox:
 
18950687355_54c526c567_k.jpg
 
18762338330_5b4fa8c7ee_k.jpg
 
The sticker was part of a advertising campaign. The owner of the sticker got a Lamy T-shirt for free, when the number of the back of his sticker was shown at the shop window of a pen shop...

...probably back in the 80's.

Hello Christof,
It's taken me a while to find your Lamy Safari sticker post just to check whether yours is the same as mine (apologies for the protective sleeve - hopefully the photo is reasonably clear enough). I've not seen any others but perhaps you have? I'll repost this also in the Safari thread started by Haywoody. Mine also has a number but it's on the front. Nothing on the back of mine.
Happy collecting!
Best wishes,
Chris

Nice sticker.

Maybe a raffle ticket for a kite?

I know the current White Safari has a grey (white?) o-ring and a chrome clip. Did the White ever come with a grey (white?) o-ring and black clip or did the black clip always have a black o-ring?

My Alpen, (shine not matte), is black/black. I didn't think to ask when discussing the matte Alpen in the past. Otherwise, I only see black o-rings on all but the current white.

While on the subject, the Lamy Joy set I have is black. The white set has what furniture ???

It's called Alpin, from 1983.
And the clip, clip screw, nib and clutch ring have to be black. (Same with the matte version for Asian market).

Nice! I have the Savannah but the terracotta at a sensible price is proving elusive! :)

Is that a first or a second generation Terracotta FP?

The correct LAMY terms are:

- Savanna Green and
- Terra Red

When they initially came out there were Savanna Green and
Terracotta Orange. Has anyone mentioned gray (whitish one, not charcoal)?

For Al-Star there was a limited color called "Blue Star". It was sold only in Itoya in Japan.

Can anyone think of a Lamy Safari which has a RED spacer ring?

Sadly not - a red o-ring would look great though! I'm thinking the charcoal with red clip; add a red o-ring and that would really make it shine :)

Nattae - congratulations on a full set of those stunning pens!!! Are they 1st or 2nd Gen?

(I was going to say "congratulations - they're beautiful" but then realised that could sound equally appropriate for a photo of someone's kids!)
