Do you think there is a chance that any of such pens might still exist somewhere outside this circle?


Of course, I think there some pens on an attic or so. Some are thrown away :-(

I got my green 1929 from a lady who's husband wanted ot throw it in the waste. She found my website and I'm very happy to have this pen in my collection.

The black one is from tradera.com a swedish auction plattform. You need patient, luck and you may find one... good luck!

Thanks, I find almost any of the pre-war 100s rather scarce nowadays, except for those, sold by professional antiquity stores or webshops, some of them also in somewhat suspect condition.
Here is my post about a broken 1934 Pelikan100, that I literally took from the hands of a cousin who meant to trash it. Thanks to the knowledge shared in these forums and help with a spare part from a FPN member I managed to bring it back to life.
