But they are too hard to find now.

Cool, and yes I know, Omas is one of the worst documented brands in terms of what they have made through the years.
In addition, here's a couple more I think you'll want:

I think there's some more, but I don't know them all by heart.
Maybe the others can chime in here!

Happy hunting  B)

I don't collect resin ones unless they are limited edition or very special.

And I only collect the old style paragons.

Beautiful collection, Freakman.  How long did it take you to find all of those?

 

 I love Omas.  Here's my collection, with celluloids at the top and resins at the bottom.  Not quite as complete as your beauties!

You're also missing the Saft Green Paragon as well as the rare blue

Italia `90. I also wouldn't be turning up my nose at the orange Omas

Writing Society pen shown as well as the LE Ercolessi.

The orange look to be a limites edition.

It is--it's only given to those that join the Omas Writing Society and

(if I'm not mistaken) those that reside in Italy. They're also numbered

like an LE.

The Saft green is being repaired by OMAS and haven't returned yet.

The resin ones got too many variations so I only bought the white one and the solid gold band/clip one

Have you ever seen a Pearl Grey paragon before 2000? I only know there're ones in the 80th Anniversary LE but couldn't find any other Pearl Grey except the Cinema.

Almost all of my celluloid Paragons are from the 1990's.  The Pearl Gray, shown here, is from 1992 as you can see in the third picture.
