You don't see this very often.  This was close to where I live - the NOS stock of an old pharmacy went up for auction from the estate of the pharmacist.  There were tons of pharmaceutical things, razor blades, and a lot of what you could buy in a drug store probably 50 years ago.

 

I got these....I will be able to offer my customers all sorts of fun pens for at least a year.  Yes, I will keep a few for myself.

So, are you so used to this rodeo you're on to the next project of the day?

Or,  still trying to calm down?

Good for you Gweimer!  I've had that exact fantasy many times.  How may nibs were there?

My initial inventory at the preview was 231 (not all those boxes are full, nor completely accurate), but after I got them home, there were a number of loose nibs and some extras I had seen in other boxes added to the lot.  I think my estimate is that I came home with about 250 nibs total.
