Woo Hoo!

 

My favorite parts are when you see lots of ripples.  That's streakers right?  Not like the icicles which are also pretty.


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Can I get a witness? Then Testify! I have more J's, but only one Dollar (blue and short). Esties are amazing but they multiply like Mogwai (80's movie reference) the one I'm staring at is your NOS and banded nurses pen. You've done well,. I salute you.

There's also a NOS small grey Transitional, and the blue LJ is NOS as well, but the box for the blue one was lost to time.

Well, my 1 has multiplied to 3 restored, 1 restoration-in-progress, with at least 3 more in the mail, along with some J-levers and #16 sacs for future work. This is within a matter of a month, so watch out, I may catch up to you by next year.

Keep it up, crazy loves company! LOL

They are addictive and I really enjoy working on them. Glad I'm not the only one.

I have a tranny in red and a green dollar with a 3550 sunburst, and they are amazing writers. I love them, I hope I don't go bankrupt

Try to hold out for the nicer more unusual patterned ones on Fleabay. Buy only pens without major defects.

 

Don't overspend on them. There's plenty out there.

 

Do a nice restore on them, including a polish job.

 

Take good care of them as you use them.

 

Spend a little time on the sales listing, being sure to take multiple clear pics If and When you decide to sell them.

 

With the exception maybe of a P-51, you are probably more likely to at least get your money back on an Estie.

My most expensive was the dollar for 33 and the tranny for 32. By no means am I remotely knowledgeable, but to me these looked pretty in good shape and shined up nice with some light scratch remover. Someone said that I did well on the dollar with the 3550 nib so I am happy about that. I just want a blue and a copper with a stub nib at least but I can never find one
