Hello Everyone,

 

This is my first post to the network. Just as the title states I am in need of some help identifying a Visconti Pen. The hand written model number on the tag is hard to make out. I will include as many pictures as I can.

 

Many thanks in advance to anyone who may have insight!

it must be a limited edition of the late 90's early 00's


Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

What nib has it got? Valuations are hit or miss on some of the earlier Viscontis as you've got users, who are hesitant sometimes given the uneven performance of the earlier filling systems, versus the more limited pool of collectors. Best source is completed auctions on ebay for the same or similar pens with boxes and papers.
