 I unexpectedly won this vintage pen on eBay recently. It is my first Platinum pen! I must say, even though I had to do a thorough cleaning and purchase a new converter, it does not disappoint! However, after scouring the internet, I can't seem to find anything about this specific model. It looks like it might be a variant on the PTL-10000 or PTL-5000 maybe? At least the shape of the barrel and the nib seem to imply that. If anyone could knows anything or can identify this pen, I'd really appreciate it. I'm very curious.

Thanks! Do you know anything about the clip style? Most of the BelAge's I've seen had a more standard style.

It have read that Platinum invited some artists to make some clip designs.

I have one with a feather/wing-like clip. A by-catch because I went after the normal ones which were sold with it.

Next week-end, I will make a photo.
