Those are gorgeous pens I did not even know existed.
Oh wow....... Thank you. Great pics, too.

Actually, my next conquest is a stainless steel Platinum short/long EF or UEF. Missed one of Russ' auctions this evening.

Now please post the MYU demo....i can't wait any longer

Deirdre, I picked up the black striped MYU about 5 years ago. The others were all acquired in 2007. I have been watching eBay for years but I finally concentrated on finding some other sources last year. Finding FPN was a big help.
Ryan, I think I have one of the Platinums you mentioned in a soft fine. It's a great pen but I would gladly trade it in for an EF or UEF. Are you sure the UEF exists? Just what I need, another quest.
Nikolaos, I posted a few pics of the MYU demo here! Sorry for the delay...

Are you going to go after the mechanical pencils and ballpoints too?
If not, now you can move on to Sailor, where there must be at least ten different models with black stripes. You will find this a huge challenge.

I've got a Japanese XF, and it's an outstanding nib. Just awesome.

This is where I will leave it. I don't have much interest in collecting all the cousins. I once thought I would like to have one of each Murex but then I discovered the Quartz version. That one is a bit too goofy for my taste so I think I will leave it to the real collectors.
I would like to find a vintage Platinum XXF or UEF now... I have a 70's Sailor with a -1- nib which I love. I have never seen a vintage Platinum finer than F. Stan, Laura, have you ever seen one?

Also, very nice photography there Woody. You ought to consider submitting an article for Pennant!
