Picked up these two Krones at an auction some time ago. I'm not a Krone guy at all, so I'm in the dark as to their history. Tried to search online, but since they bear no real markings that I can find (like I said I'm a noob to Krone), I haven't found anything close to definitive.

 

All help is appreciated in regards to any ID suggestions!!

That's one of the GoDaddy line. Don't know they color name, but that should get you to the appropriate pics on the Krone website.

GoDaddy?? Really??

 

So are these pretty much the lowest end Krones made?

They're user grade, but there's no such thing as a bad Krone. There are a variety of excellent user grades out there, some costing less when new. Remember this brand has a lifetime warranty and honors it if you need repairs. The nibs are fabulous on the whole.

Point taken - just would never see the correlation between an ultra high-end goods manufacturer and a lowest price web hosting company.

One pays for the other? 

 

All i know is I grab Krones in my nib sizes whenever I can. They're awesome writers, reliable, have good service to back them up and many of the finishes are incredibly beautiful. If you ever nab one of their rare stubs, you will know the meaning of fabulous.

Thank you - appreciate the help! You do make good points, and also with these, since they're already lightly used, I'll throw them into my usage rotation!!

Should hold up well. Worst I ever had go wrong was a piston leak on a captured convertor model after 10 year's regular service and they had it fixed and back to me in comparable time to MB at no charge other than postage.
