Have a Pelikan M200 that suffered from the same problem. Showed it to Tim Girdler, he said it looked as if it could be repaired, if the repair was done CAREFULLY. I used fresh epoxy, the old kind that is loaded with silicon. Just a drop, then cleaned off the extras. Cured for 24 hours, smoothed the surface a bit. It shows but the pen writes as well as it ever did.
Best of luck to you,
From a person's actions, we may infer attitudes, beliefs, --- and values. We do not know these characteristics outright. The human dichotomies of trust and distrust, honor and duplicity, love and hate --- all depend on internal states we cannot directly experience. Isn't this what adds zest to our life?
