An auction I won at the last minute: it says it's sterling but it looks like lead.

The nib looks promising, though.

If you use the pen, watch out for:

Signs and symptoms of lead poisoning in adults may include:

  • High blood pressure
  • Abdominal pain
  • Constipation
  • Joint pains
  • Muscle pain
  • Declines in mental functioning
  • Pain, numbness or tingling of the extremities
  • Headache
  • Memory loss
  • Mood disorders
  • Reduced sperm count, abnormal sperm

Unfortunately, that sounds like how I feel every morning when the alarm goes off.

I've already got everything but the sperm count thing. Gravity take its toll.

 

I'm hoping that what it needs is a good polish, as well as the new sac, the nib repair and...whatever else it needs.
