Sorry, no.  It's clearly one of the ones for the German market, but I don't know those.  And my high school German is too rusty to decipher what the label says.  

I'm not even sure of all the ones for the UK market, except Brexit (I bought a bottle of that last fall at the Commonwealth Pen show, but it's a bit light to be good for a lot of uses; mostly it was an excuse to get another Charlie pen  :rolleyes:, because Nathan didn't have the Boston Safety pens ready (I thought about getting a couple of the Committee of Safety inks, but since the pens weren't available there was no point).

Yes, about the colour it says Prussian Blue. The two lines at the bottom only refer to the characteristics, document proof and the other in red means fake proof

That was actually going to be my completely uninformed guess but then I looked up a bunch of Goulet bottles and their labels differed so wildly from their contents I gave up.  Amusing

Hmmm.  I wonder if the color really is Prussian blue....  Which I remember somewhat fondly from back when I was an art major in college.

Prussian Blue is so complex and variable it's hard to say no. I suspect they captured its brighter tones. But the best pen-friendly imitation I've seen is Sailor Sei Boku. It's so close in color and shading that I had to do a chemical test to prove it's synthetic and not "real" Prussian Blue.

I know Goulet already got back to the OP about this, but I wanted to offer this link (goulet video) which has a little bit of info about it.

 

hope this is helpful

 

skip to 3m 32s to see the Prussian Blue part

Just give me the Parker 51s and nobody needs to get hurt.
