Hey guys, I found this bottle of 4001, can you help me identify the age of the bottle and it's possible worth?
Many thanks

If you post photos of the box/bottle label/s your wish might come true. :)

We can probably help in identification and finding the age of it (provided that you post some pictures!), but do note that ink bottles aren't normally* worth too much. At least not worth enough to justify shipping.


*Of course there are exceptions, like the older style Akkerman bottles, the Sheaffer Skrip with inkwells, etc.
