FPN appearing slow

Dearest Member or Visitor of the little Fountain Pen Nut house on the digital prairie,

Due to a continuing DDoS attack, FPN could be moving only slowly. Hosting Support is dealing with this. The earlier reported hardware issue has been fixed. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Is this pen here something special?



Is it so rare that people would pay over 800 USD?

I can not read the auction page but if it is a Presidential model it will be solid gold not gold filler.

Parker 75 in solid gold aren't very common pens. They are desirable items for a collector of P 75.



    Say that again, I have a pen here somewhere...

Don't know that I would go that high but the Presidential does garner a higher price than the standard gold filled model.
