San Francisco, Chicago, Place de la Concorde and Athens are among my favourite for the colour combinations.

In M800/1000 sizes, I would gladly procure all four.

I love Place de Concorde. Saw one for sale at the Melbourne Pen Show a few years ago and stupidly didn’t buy it.

You might come across it again, if you visit the show regularly. Tastes/preferences do change with time.

 

OTOH, if you have/recall any details for that stall/stallholder then try getting in touch.

If I only could keep one? - hard decision!

It could be this:

...or this:

...or this

...or...

 

Beautiful, Love that Jade.  At the LA pen show I made the acquaintance of a gentleman who had a nice offering of vintage Pelikans (I bought two of them!). He had two pens similar to your jade pen but they had the lapis blue binde and well, they were out of my tax bracket.  It would have meant selling the house, and maybe a few other precious items, just for one.  And I have never even seen the light tortoise in person.

If forced to choose only one, it'd be the recent M815 Metallic Stripe... may the rest of the flock forgive me!

Forgot about that, definitely prefer it to the Stresemann. Now, where is that M1000 version.

Hopefully, it will follow the M1005 Stresemann.  unsure.png

At the moment I just have 2 and they are both my favorite :)  Just photographed the first one -- M800 Stone Garden, now with a wonderful Italic Broad nib

At this moment the M600 vibrant green. When I looked at it for the first time it didnt look very appealing, but after time it grows on me. I think it has amazing colors and the green and gold finish make a perfect combination. My wife finds this pen really ugly though. She finds it the leest attractive Pelikan I have. So at least one of us is wrong (most likely she is)😀

That is the attitude that will prevent you from procuring further Pelikan's.  laugh.png

The 400NN is my favorite Pelikan line/model.  The M600 green o' green and the M101N Lizard are my two favorite modern birds.  Honorable mentions to the other four M101Ns. ;)
