And the emoticon is not just for the clip -- it's also for the price. I picked up a similar looking pen (only with a black section) a couple of weeks ago at a local estate sale company's warehouse sale. For $5 US. kay, mine was JUST the pen, no box. But no extraneous ugly clip, either.... Of course, I could very easily end up paying that current price in the hunt to find a converter that will fit a Skripsert (as if trying to located one for the Skripsert someone gave me recently wasn't enough of a fools errand already, I went and bought myself the Lady Skripsert as well....
Mind you there really is NO accounting for eBay prices -- I saw a "rare" Pilot Metropolitan Retro Pop (seriously, that's how the seller described it: as the pen being "rare" ) listed this afternoon for nearly $169 (!) -- and while it was probably mean of me to have done so, I messaged the seller to say, basically "WTH are you smoking?"

"It's very nice, but frankly, when I signed that list for a P-51, what I had in mind was a fountain pen."
