Photos show up for me, but to make it easier next time perhaps you can try using Imgur or some other image hosting site?

Have a nice night/evening!

I could repair two of the three myself, and I could especially use the first Montblanc. I have the same model, but with a damages grip section, so our two broken pens could make one good one.

Thanks for putting this together, very nice of you.

Here is my latest attempt to share photos of this set.

please gripe if they don't show up. I tested on another computer, but I did likewise with the last batch /boggle.

I am leaning toward separating the collection because there are several people who
profess special affinities for one pen or another. Separating the collection would
be a modification of my original statement that I would give preference to
people who want all three. Would that modification be an outrage to the
community? Moderators, please advise :) If it's wrong to change those terms,
I'll stick with the original terms! In any case, I'll make my decisions on 20 Oct
2019.

I am not interested in the pens, although they do appear to be serviceable. I am just writing on posting pics here. The upload tab under the FPN logo leads to an uploading page, although it might not be feasible to upload from a phone. After uploading an image of a supported type, one can just copy the BBcode line from the links provided and paste it in a post, and that's it.

We would prefer that you upload the photos to our site using the Upload tab in the top line of our page. This means each thread will always make sense - Photobucket went away and other 3rd party sites might do so as well making images unavailable. So, please try out the Upload facility.

I would be interested in any of the three as I would like the challenge of restoring them to their original condition. Thanks for the opportunity.

I would like to be entered for this if you'd be willing to send them to the UK. I'd like to do the repair on these. :)

KingRoach --- If you can provide a prepaid, pre-addressed box that I can drop at UPS, FedEx, or US Postal Service, I'm willing to ship to the UK.

 

Adding you to the roster for the Sunday roll-off :)

Thanks. Do you have an idea what cost is to put placed on the box to be sent to the UK by FedEx? It should be a minimal box (large letter) size at most, but I don't know how it works in the USA, you have the flat-rate box system thing so there's a minimal cost.

Hi, King Roach : if you win, we will figure something out. My wife occasionally ships to the UK and will have some advice for us.

I would be interested in all three as I think I would be able to either repair all three or have the parts used.

Thank you for the generous PIF.
