My newest Estie acquisition arrived today. The blue transitional J, 1555 Gregg nib. Decided to take a family photo. Picked up this ready to use cigar box to to use for pens at a local smoke shop while running errands today. (freebie)

 

The transitional is in need of a sac, and thus far the section has been very stubborn....

 

The photo......

Yeah, probably should have had something else there....

Didn't want it empty, and I don't have that many spare nibs....

Sorry to urge avoiding that "empty space abhorrence law thing"  ;-) no critique intended. :-) 

Lamy faux or no isn't even quite an apples vs oranges substitute.

Excepting my stickered blue, once the board changes settle, should throw my own on the c board. They should be elsewhere, in use.

The cigar box is a beautiful display box. Well done.
