Back in 2016, I was thrilled to review a Centropen 100820. But, I just recently found out that I may have not identified it correctly and it may have been misidentified by the retailer as well.
My original thread on this pen was effusive, and the pen deserved it. It's amazing: gorgeous and a nib like no pen I've ever used. It was described as feeling like a paint brush, and it really does. So, for reference, the original sales link is here:
For reference, I'm adding a few of my original photos below. (I'm a better pen photographer now.)
I hit post by accident.
Anyway, I had a comment today that it may not be a Centropen. It may be made by a brand called ISCO. The poster suggested it was Yugoslavian. Some brief eBay research showed me two pens by ISCO which showed a lot of similarities.
The hints in this direction include the ISCO on the nib, lack of any engraving on the barrel, and the logo on the case. Also, I can't find anything about the Centropen 100820 except for the MyUberPens listing and my own video or writings.
The hints toward Centropen include the original listing and the description of the pen there as an extremely rare flagship. Also, I own another Centropen: a 10014 with the exact same celluloid but with a steel nib and engraving.
So, have I been misidentifying the pen this whole time? Or, is it a really rare Centropen?
