Very nice pen but one possible correction. That looks to be one of the second edition resin body pens instead of the first edition celluloid.

@ Jar...I've just realised...it's made of stardust!!!! Actually, on a more serious note, it may be resin, i'll double check and post a correction; my knowledge of such things is still limited :thumbup:

One way you can tell is by the cap band.

Posted Image

The older celluloid pens had a thinner cap band and it was mechanically engraved while the resin body pens have a wider cap band that is laser engraved.

But both the resin and celluloid models are beautiful. Here you can see a blue resin between charcoal and turquoise celluloid Classica pens.

Very nice, yeah mine looks like a resin in that case. I have to say i'm very proud of it, it's everything I hope it would be and it's a real pleasure to hold and write with it. Thank you taking the pictures Jar and for taking the time to explain the difference.

Regards

Mike
