Great idea, Mana. And your flock is awesome and still growing.. :D 

I always enjoy to see different Pelikan collections- they all are great.  Christoph collection and photo's for me like benchmark. Beautiful, just beautiful.

Some of my chest content, mainly vintage 100 or 100 N.  800 series pen still safely packed and waiting why I finish renewal of my library room.

 

100 series

Thank you, but the very reverse is true. Your collection ist breathtaking!

 

I have never seen a 250 pencil in red and tortoise. I didn't even know that it does exist!

Barutti, thank you for your kind words! I do have to say that it has nothing on your collection though which is on par with Christofs, both leave me speechless... wow!

I'm amazed that mana's amazing collection was almost immediately "destroyed" by some impressive collections. Thanks everyone for sharing some pen porn.

 

Below is my current accumulation. Planning to sell the top tortoise at least and give the green 140 to a family member. Otherwise I think I "need" the rest. The first and third from the left are frankenpelikans. The left black 140 has Taylorix cap and 400 series nib. The fourth one is a 100 model with Ibis piston mechanism.

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...

Thanks for the info Christof. I will be a little more careful with this pen :) 

 

What beautiful collections you all have. I just have to think: I am not jealous, I am not jealous, I am not jealous. Let me admit it, I'm actually a bit jealous

Honestly, it was never my intention to destroy someone else‘s collection with my photos. I just followed the invitation of the OP....

It might be the case... How many posts I need for that, if you know, please? The file has 164KB.

I don´t know if I remember correctly, but it could well be you can´t post any pictures before you reach Gold Status.

I couldn´t find anything about the posting of pictures being mentioned there, but with your problem something rings in the back of my head and says "Could be connected!".

Wow... and yes, the clip, it seems to be a bit concave at the top?
