  1. Hello dear members of FPN, I would like to know whether there are any ways to identify when the particular bottle of J Herbin has been manufactured. Also is there a shelf life to their inks (non-shimmer one, I am looking at Poussiere De Lune with interest). This is assuming that the ink itself was not sun-bathing on a window display or the bottle otherwise tampered with. I am also looking at PR Ebony Purple, but am wary of catching a bad sample, now that their inks are manufactured after the passing of the original owner (who presumably knew the secret sauce to make these colors tick).

    Is This A Genuine 146?

    Hi there, I have two other Montblanc pens. A 149 I bought from the local Montblanc counter, and a 146 I previously bought online. I was able to use the information here to satisfy myself that it was genuine (it's a W Germany monotone nib) and the man at the Montblanc counter agreed with no hesitation. I received a second 146 yesterday that both he and I are a little less sure of. It's to be a present for a friend and I wouldn't like to be gifting a copy, so I would really appreciate some help. The man at the Montblanc counter originally said he thought it wasn't genuine, but was only b
  3. Hello there, I have just restored this 1st generation Parker Vacumatic Junior in Mottled Silver Pearl Celluloid with the Gold trim rather than the usual Silver trim. The pen is in extra fine condition with no brassing and excellent transparency... This reverse trim Vacumatics are pretty rare but this one seems a bit odd. This is because the imprint seems to date the pen to the first quarter of 1940 – as 0 and the three dots indicate. But as far as I know the 1st generation Junior was made only until 1938… Under extreme magnification the 0 might be possibly interpreted a

    Dip Pen History?

    I was wondering when the first dip nibs with a modern, Speedball-type ink reservoir on the top of the nib appeared. (I spotted one in a TV production of Hound of the Baskervilles, in which Watson writes to Holmes and I said, 'Hey! I have that nib!') Would these have been in common use in Victorian England? Thanks!

    146 Date Identification

    I purchased another 146 for what I would describe as an absolute bargain. I have taken a look at some dating charts and information, but I cannot definitively pinpoint the production span of this particular pen. Plastic piston threadsGermany on clipNo "Pix" anywhereSlitted ink windowMonotone 14K nibPlastic feedI believe it to be from the early 90's (1991-1992). Then again, some parts may have been swapped or replaced.

    Vacumatic Barrel Question

    Hello. I am wondering if a true Parker barrel could be without a stamp? In short: I have a dove grey barrel with a nib dated to 1946, US; it also happens to be a black band. I can post photos tomorrow when I have daylight, if needed? Thank you kindly in advance, Jay
