I was a bidder but lost. The only piece I was interested in was that black desk pen marked US Government. If you won this lot for the inks, nibs or other pens and aren't interested in that US Government desk pen, I'd love to buy it off you.

You can see the pen at the very bottom of the pic.

Someone had the pretty keen eye there.

 

I almost blew right past 3 pics..

 

But the 4th one with the 5 Osmiroid screw in (Estie) nibs with the U.S. Esite (I think) pen makes this a pretty neat deal.

Ugh, I know. I screwed up by not bidding enough. I was hoping to get it cheap as it didn't see much interest. I should have just bid high and resold everything but the US Government pen and Osmiroid nibs.

I was tempted, but let it go.  I missed the desk pen altogether, but caught the Osimiroid nibs.

Just keep in mind that the Osmiroid nibs are gold-plated nibs. In general they are pretty inexpensive on "the bay".
