Hello! Here are my Rappen and IBIS collections.

 

I am sorry for poor picture quality.

AS you know, "Rappen"and "IBIS" were brands of Günther Wagner as well as "Pelikan".

There were much more versions in Rappen and IBIS than I thought.

Below is set of steel-nibbed school pens, marked only "Pelikan W. Germany".  Would love to know if they had a name or model number....

I believe those are P20 Twists, late 80s to early 90s.

P10 and P20, I´d say.

Oh I'm in the same boat! I missed a lot of special editions before deciding to collect Pelikans. Thankfully I managed to snag an M600 Pink because the SH prices are just yikes!

Anyway, there are quite a lot of amazing collections here (I'll even admit I'm a bit envious! but I'll catch up one day :P )

I actually have a hit/wishlist where I keep track of the pens I would like to get one day.

What a wonderful collection of colors! Which models are the two pens: top row, 2nd and 4th from left? Blue and silver go so well together, drop dead gorgeous :wub:

Indeed. Awesome collection you have!
I guess, these are Blue dunes and Ocean swirl from Pelikan M800 series.

Thanks! I really do love them! I think Pelikan designs are really cool (but that's why we're here :P ). @Barutti is correct about the two models :D

The Ocean Swirl is one of my absolute favourites, too, and I was very lucky to find one for a lot less money than I had imagined. The Blue Dunes is a beautiful pen, but somehow I never felt the urge to buy one. The Metal Stripe on the other hand, I just had to get that one, there was no way around that!

 

What really surprised me, was the all white striped M605. I LOVED the promotion pictures and couldn´t wait to get hold of one - until I saw it in person. Somehow it was nothing like the pictures. It was just... nope. And the candy couloured pens with white caps... nope.

 

But the top picture... ooooh yes!

I like how it looks BUT I have decided to never use that pen (unless I get a second one). When I initially got it I inked it with Star Ruby. It turns out that Star Ruby not only got between the o-rings on the piston but also stained it pink and no amount of soaking would get it out of that soft rubber.

 

This is how it looked like:

I sent it to Pelikan for repair and haven't used the pen since. The pen is pretty but useless if inking it ruins the looks.

I do really like them. I have a few of them, used them at school and in the university, in the nineties. They were cheaper as the P450 but had the same nib. There was also a calligraphy model with a 1.5 nib.

Lovely, colorful collection and stunningly crisp photos, MateB! I wish I could use the M800, so many beautiful designs.

 

Here are some pics of my collection! I have an incoming grey vintage 100N that is not pictured.

a modern M6xx is my daily carrier, great fun swapping tips from a wide variety of vintage nibs.

Thank you, Giedrius, that is one of my favorites! And you are the one whose 100n I am awaiting! (nice to see you on here) :)

 

Thank you, N1003U and doublechocolate--I can see I'm in excellent company ;)
