This is my latest Bayard-- a 656, circa 1950s. Thanks again to ebay seller amateur25. I decided to play up the pen's shade of green by contrasting it with foliage from our garden. It's inked with Montblanc Red Chalk and the writing sample is written on Clairefontaine. The nib reads P and F with the crossed nibs logo and 18ct as well as 50. Thanks for looking! http://i1231.photobucket.com/albums/ee513/betweenthelens/IMG_4275_zps4d98a37d.jpg http://i1231.photobucket.com/albums/ee513/betweenthelens/IMG_4315_zpsef8e3723.jpg http://i1231.photobucket.com/albums/ee513/betweenthelens/IMG_4324_zpsd5deaccb.jpg
I just received this Bayard Superstyl 650 from ebay seller Ringsmith999, whom I recommend. The pen is circa 1940s and the photographs just don't do it justice. The nib is marked 18 ct, size 50 with the crossed nibs and the P and F on either side. Bayard, Fabrication Francaise and stylo sans reproche appear on the pen barrel with 650 at the end. I've used a Henri Cartier-Bresson photograph of the great French painter Pierre Bonnard for the background and the writing sample is a quote of Cartier-Bresson's in Akkerman Passage Blauw on Tomoe River paper.

This is my new Bayard. It's interesting as the cap's clip is marked unique and depose. The nib is unmarked. The lever has the Bayard logo of crossed nibs but an E and F on either side, different from the P and F on either side of my dragonfly clip Red Ripple Bayard's lever logo imprint. The body of the pen has the worn imprint: Marque Dep. 13 Fevr. 1912 Bayard (with the crossed nibs logo but with a P and F on either side), P S F Fabrication Francaise No. 430 The ebay seller bernotte sold me the pen and I highly recommend him. Great pen at a great price, great communications, pen expertly packed and shipped quickly.
