And when you order a new car they add £400 on for delivery.

 

There seems to be a reason for that. If they would put the cost in the price of the car, taxes would be higher.

O.K. it isn't a Waterman - sorry - but I thought this may Parker may raise a chuckles.

It is in good vintage condition (of course :) )

 

..of particular interest are the unusual pocket clip and the calligraphy nib!

Now, fountain pens are banned for under-14s?


Anyone owning three or more working pens is in no position to disparage choices by others.

If I were selling that pen, I would have felt obliged to replace that nib.  An expert could possibly straighten the nib, for a price, but I have often seen creases and such in straightened nibs.  The price makes it seem ludicrous to me.  Rightly a good chuckle.  I enjoy these.

Looks to me as if it may have met some small needle nose. Makes my fillings hurt.

In the last pic the left tine looks somewhat bent.  Not in the other pictures though.  Definitely amber marine.
