Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

Are all vintage Conway Stewart pens engraved / marked with their model number on the barrel?

This is how it is on mine. I've read that depending on the year, sometimes the reference number whas on the second line. You have more information here : http://jonathandonah...sbook/page2.htm

Thanks! That does help figure out which model is which, but the site doesn't help figure out which model one would like vs other models. The two vintage CSes I have, I do like a lot.

Thanks for the review. Vintage Conway Stewarts are wonderful pens but the numbering "system" gives everyone interested in them a raging headache!
