Well, I have attend my first pen show, the one in Cologne on April 1st.

I was planing to buy one or two pens and at the end decided on Mabie Todd Swan Leverless 205/60 with flex gold nib. Nicely restored, very smooth and wet writer, I love it.

Bought it from kind and helpful Sarj Minhas (one man pen show!) on whose table(s) I spent half of my time at the show :)

 

The other two I bought on eBay:

1940s Bayard Excelsior 560 Standard in excellent condition.

Leningrad Soyuz - never saw one of those before - nice wet writer.

The Swan is a beautiful pen. Sarj Minas is a great person. Enjoy your new pens!

Niiice... That Bayard is particularly gorgeous, any chance of a peek at the nib?

Of course! The nib is a fine (maybe even towards extra fine), no flex, fairly smooth, and the pen is overall a pleasant writer.
