I'm thrilled with the newest addition to my collection -- I have such a soft spot for these C/F pens.  But I'm a little confused....  It looks like a C/F, but the tag says "Laque Veritable".  Is that the model?  I'd love more information about this beauty!

 

Thanks.

I think it's definitely a CF and Laque Veritable = genuine lacquer which it may well have.

Thanks, Force.  I knew that "Laque" was laquer, but I wasn't sure if "Veritable" was a model of French for true/real.  I appreciate the help.

Yup looks like my CF. The plating at the sides of your pens nib looks in good condition (which is often a problem with this pen). Enjoy!

It's in absolutely perfect condition -- I'd say NOS.  I got lucky with this one.  It's a gorgeous pen.

Nice!  :)  I've often considered buying one, but I always worry about that plating at the sides of the nib.  -_-
