Never expected to get this:  https://www.ebay.com...353.m2749.l2649

 

Ah, well, another restoration project.  Should be fairly easy.

A bargain, is it a J?

 

Ebay prices seem very low at the moment, a good time for buyers

I just got a white CH pen, with white cap jewels for about $15.   The deals are still out there.

I resacced the pen.  The pencil is the reason I bid on it.  Nice cap actuated pencil.  Reminds me of some Parker 51 pencils.  It will be another one to do crosswords.
