Looks like most of the tines on the 1314 were either broken or "clipped" off, and then potentially "smoothed". What remains has a weird rounded, angled aspect to them. A shame, one of rarest renew points, definitely not worth anywhere near the $65 asked for in that condition......

FP Ink Orphanage-Is an ink not working with your pens, not the color you're looking for, is never to see the light of day again?!! If this is you, and the ink is in fine condition otherwise, don't dump it down the sink, or throw it into the trash, send it to me (payment can be negotiated), and I will provide it a nice safe home with love, and a decent meal of paper! Please PM me!For Sale: TBA

I haven't seen a lot of 1314s . . . nor can I remember any.

looks like it's a rare flexible stub, but has been badly clipped down and reground

I have (or had) a 1314 nib.  It was also ground, but very usable.   The 2284 doesn't appear to be bad, but the seller has the BIN way too high.   This looks like someone who doesn't really know the value, so sets a really high BIN in the hopes of flushing out an offer from someone who knows what it's worth.

I'm with Larry -- "Yikes" is a good description of that price....  Especially since a few years ago I paid just over HALF that amount for a black LJ with a 9284 nib....

This is sort of like the people who were selling the house we bought.  It was originally on the market for way more and had no nibbles from buyers.  So they carved a parcel off (it was an L-shaped parcel originally, and the remaining land for sale was the long part of the L) and put the remaining property back on the market for 100K US less.  And we got it for another 20K below the second price (and for less than we sold our old house in Massachusetts), which meant that we could afford to do some of the immediate necessary repairs (new roof, new kitchen, new wiring and an upgraded service to the house), and work on the 3rd floor bathroom).

So, what's the seller going to do, separate them and sell each for $65.99?
