Someone, somewhere has just spent the best part of $1400 Canadian on 2 huge lots of Estie NOS nibs, which included over 30 different ''flexies''.  Was anyone else watching this? The seller said his father used to have a pen shop and these were found in the attic!  I wonder if there are any more treasures up there.

I always refer to myself as the Ebay seller's friend.   


I was fortunate enough to have gone to the estate clearance for an old drug store near here.  There were 267 NOS Esterbrook nibs in boxes, and I managed to get them all.  I didn't have to spend $1400 to get them.   I still have a lot of those nibs, including a few of the 9128 nibs.
