For anybody who doesn't know: The Philippines was a commonwealth of the U.S until the U.S gov't. gave Philippines it's independence.
The U.S fought against the spanish in 1898 and since the spanish lost, Spain gave the Philippines to the U.S. It became the commonwealth of the U.S in 1935. Then, during the second world war, American and Filipino fought the Japanese army and lost, General Mcarthur left the Phlippines for Australia, but he promised to return. He said "I shall return" to the Filipino people. Indeed, he returned again and landed in Leyte gulf. Eventually, the Japanese gov't. surrendered after the U.S bombed two cities in Japan, thus ending the war. The U.S granted the Philippines it's independence in 1946. Source: Wikipedia
Above story explains the bottles I found are "made in the Philippines" (new bottles are made in France). Very rare, probably 50 years old ink (I don't know). These bottles are mint, never been used, in mint box.
The box says: SOLV-X, while the new quink doen't put SOLV-X in their box. Anybody interested in these vintage inks? They claim this ink is perfect for the vintage parker 51
Very vintage quink ink: 10 bottles only, color: red.
