Hi all!
This pen is in an auction.  They don't show almost any information.  I concluded it's a junior size Doric comparing informations on the internet.  It it right? What could be a good price for a pen like that (without restoration)?
Thanks!

João,

 

Probably too late to help you. I picked one up just like it at a local antique store ten years ago for $20. They are nice pens and I hope you were able to snag it for a good price.

Hi Hanamizu,

I haven't seen your response.  Thanks!.  I won the auction.  I've paid something over US$ 50,00.   The barrel and the cap are beautiful, but the nib and the feed are terrible rsrsrs.  

 

I'll have to send it for a very good nibmeister, like goldnibs in Spain. 

 

Regards!

 

João.

Fifty US Dollars would be 50.00 and not 50,00. Lol.
