    Old Centropens

    So I too started collecting vintage pens, I guess it's part of the game When thinking about what brand to start with I thought I shall start "at home" and get some old CSSR fountain pens, that's how I got to buy this Centropen 3068 and a Derby. Back when I was at elementary school I "stole" a pen very much like this from my mother (she was a teacher) and I remember I thought how cool this pen was so I was happy when I've found out these are still available from online sources and I got one in fair shape. The same seller had this Derby too, I like the green marble body so I took that one too. A few hours and a bunch of micromesh made the thing and after buffing it up they look quite well. The 3068 writes well, although has a very thin line (I am a "medium nib guy") but one needs to write small letters every now and then What puzzles me is that despite there are collectors of Centropens, Hardtmuths, Koh-I-Noors and their subbrands, I have not found any information on these pens, some history, years of production per type, etc... nada, nix, nothing... so I would appreciate if you know of such a wiki, blog ar person. Now, the ladies (sorry for the quality, I have never thoughts it's such a pain to shoot glossy black objects...): http://i65.tinypic.com/j9m42r.jpg http://i66.tinypic.com/2dj4gol.jpg http://i64.tinypic.com/xkw0sy.jpg

    Need A Black Skyline Cap Derby

    Hello, I'm restoring a standard-sized Skyline (silver moire color) and need a black derby to complete the cap. Does anybody have one to sell me? (To be clear: I don't need the whole cap, just the mushroom-shaped plastic derby portion of the cap. It needs to be black.) Thanks! Richard
