So I bought a Gold Seal Doric ringtop in Morocco, but I don't like the nib: a rigid Skyline. I've gone looking around for a new nib, and what happened but I found another Doric ringtop (black...very pretty) for about the same money as the previous one, only with a flexier nib. Of course I bought it, because I am a madwoman.

 

I already have a Doric with a clip in Kashmir, so this means I have a collection...this is probably not a good thing.

 

But I still want another nib for the Morocco.

Update: the Doric ringtop was sold out from under me. I'm gutted. It was a great pen. One hates to wish death or bankruptcy on a total stranger, but I don't have to justify my feelings here.

If not for our high degree of self control there would be no limit to where our pen passions might go.  Holy Superego Batman!

 

Don't worry they made a lot of pens and another will turn up soon enough!

What happened? Did you both agree on the sale then someone else offered more?

What the seller told me was that another buyer had pushed the button at an earlier time. He apologized, and hoped that I'd see something else I'll want.

 

In a perfect world, perhaps.
