For some unknown reason, a number of years ago I bought three boxed Esterbrook nibs off Fleabay (I didn't own an Esterbrook pen! :mellow:).  They are in small green and black boxes, labeled 9128 (Flexible Extra Fine), 9460 (Rigid Medium) and 9550 (Firm Extra Fine).  I think I thought at the time that one of them (9128?) was somewhat collectible for EB types.  So would it be better to raffle these off as boxed collectibles or to get an EB pen to put them to use?  Inquiring minds!  :lol:

They took the blue from the skies and the pretty girls' eyes and a touch of Old Glory too . . .
