My job here is done....

 

This one is the prototype I got at the Ohio Pen Show this past year.  The trim is sterling, and even the nib has no stamp on it.

Thank you for making my point.  :wacko:

 

What IS that clip? That material? That incising on the band?????  And what's with a blank nib??!!??

 

Evil, I tell you, evil!!

 

(of course, I have a 447 dipless set coming that I've never seen before either, so I'll be sure and contribute to the evil once it's here)

Yeah that "historian" gene is hardwired. Requires pulling the engine block & specialist tools ;-)

Be sure to show Us your treasures!

Actually I only bought a bottle of royal blue Quink to match the red bottle I used for my 10,000 word project (http://www.fountainp...erry-christmas/)

 

It was cheap at 15 bucks for a FULL bottle of ink that is probably 60-70 years old and still beautiful.

 

I saw a stunning bottle of brown Sheaffer's Skrip that stated on the cap "The Successor to Ink" and it was only 10 bucks with some ink still in the bottle...and I circled around, and would you guess what....

 

Sumgai bought it. Foiled again! Every show he gets me....

Another example of a Dollar Demi black jewel set.

And a Waterman set with thermometer case. The wear on the case and what looks like a replacement clip on the pen suggests that this was not a gift left in the back of a drawer.

Fun thread. Great story. Thanks. Been chasing an Este green jewel for years.
