I passed on it four years ago when it was first issued.  I'll continue to pass on it now....

Saw that. I don't think I would pay #100 for it. At $400 it better have at least a 14 k nib. Not a 18k gold plated nib.

Someone beat me to a new-Esterbrook commemorative Hindenburg pen. Comes filled with gasoline. 

 

Maybe they can also do a shiny Enola Gay model? 

 

Or new purse pens -- Little Boy and Fat Man!
