Hi, I know that we have a thread here for posting our latest additions to our flocks but I think we could also use a thread where fine folks here could show off their collection by posting family photos of their flocks in their entirety and in their most recent state. I will start with mine dated today... the posted ones are my EDC and desk pens.

Quite the handsome family, Mana.  I'm afraid mine is less fecund to date.

Screensaver picture, mana!

These birds have a perfect home with you.

My small and simple flock needs some photo session prep before I add the pic.


Edt: @herjaegger - this is lovely minimalistic elegance :)

Great idea, Mana! 

And what a fantastic flock you have!! :wub:

 

Here are most of mine - several of the pens in the 200/400 size & almost all 600 are actually my wife's. There are several (100's, 101Ns, 1000's, etc) that didn't make the pics (also missing are the pencils, RBs and BPs).

 

The 200/400 size:

The 600's:

The 800's:

Hello Mana

 

Great Idea! I already follow two threads (one on FPGeeks and one on german penexchange) with exactly this topic since a couple of years. That's why I have a couple of smaller family pictures on stock :)

(What I don't have is a picture of the entire family, but this would be to large...)

Great idea!

 

So here are the pictures of my flock. As you can see I'm not much of a photographer (taken with my mobile phone). But they are all there. The first photo are 600's and two M800. The second one are the vintage/old ones and the third photo is of the M150, M200, M400 M700 M910 and the Ductus.

What´s the black Frankenpelikan in the second picture (fourth from the left)? 400NN cap with an old black M400 body? Or is it a black striped vintage 400 body? *squinting at the picture* I can´t decide whether it has stripes or not...

To be honest, I don't have a clue. The pen is completely black (no stripes). The pen was somewhere at the bottom of a drawer. The nib is cracked. The cap says Pelikan 400 Germany. So it could very well be a Frankenpen. So it goes down again in the drawer.

The cap is clearly a 400NN from the 1950s/1960s.

 

The body looks like an old style M400 from the 1980s/1990s.

 

And the nib looks like it would fit the time of the body.

The Christmas tree lines don´t reach the central slit separating the tines, right?

I really love Christofs pictures...

 

Apart from them being really good quality, they just go "Well... here we have the greens. And there the black striped ones. Different colours of the same pen? Here we go. Capped/uncappced? Of course. What have we got concerning tortoise marbled? Let´s see... Very common pens right beside those you hardly have a chance seeing in real life? Certainly. Pencils to match the pens? No problem."

 

It´s great! :wub:

I´m trying to add my image, but i´m getting the following message: "You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community."

 

What I´m doing wrong? Same message for PNG or JPG files.

Are you doing this with  "Upload"option on the topof the page? You just needed to reduce your .jpg file size up to 2 MB.

If the size is not the problem -- could also be you haven´t accumulated enough posts...

 

And the maximum size is 1.95 MB. Not a single bit more it seems.

Thank you Carola.

Well, that is what makes collecting fun, at least for me. I feel like a curator of mini-exhibitions while composing these photographies.

Actually, Pelikan offered black 400 and 400NN with green ink windows already in the 1950's and 60's. These pens are quite difficult to find these days...
