  1. Hi everyone, I'm a fairly new and definitely inexperienced collector (and I'm 21-years-old). I've loved pens for several years, but I don't have a lot of money to spend on pens. However, something amazing happened: long story short, my brother (not a pen collector) wants to give me ~$1,000 to buy the pen of my dreams. This isn't a minor decision for me -- this pen will become, by far, the most expensive thing I own. The problem? I had no clue I'd ever have this much money to spend on a pen. And so I really don't know what to get. My brother and I went to the MB store and we looked at the new Shakespeare WE. It was very nice, and I have a good connection with Shakespeare's work. I went home and looked at the Fitzgerald WE online bc I love the Great Gatsby. It's tough to tell without actually seeing the pen, but it looks a bit less aesthetically appealing than the Shakespeare (also, I don't know much of anything about the symbolism other than the Art Deco design). Anyways, I have a few questions: 1. Can you suggest any pens in the ~1,000 price range? 2. I've read a bit about the Fitzgerald WE online. Does anyone have any reviews? I tend to like a heavy pen that's just a little bit thicker than the Meiserstuck. 3. What is a good price range to pay for the Fitzgerald WE? I'm assuming the best way to buy the Shakespeare is full retail through the MB store? It's not like I'm looking to sell this pen (no matter what it is, it will have a lot of sentimental value coming from my brother), but I don't want to get ripped off or buy at the top of the market.

    Is It Fake? S.fitzgerald

    Hi, everyone. I'm finding a WE Fitzgerald and I'd found this one on eBay. But I think it's one of fakes. I never seen the serial numbers like this yellow and just printed. Isn't it?
  3. I'm considering a Boheme and came across the following oddity on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Montblanc-Boheme-White-Marbled-Lacquer-Fountain-Pen-LTD-Signed-Numbered-/271676101815?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f412854b7 I originally thought it was just a mislabelled Fitzgerald WE mistakenly put up by a misinformed eBay seller but as I dug into the description I realized that, no - they really think this a legit Boheme! (Check out the nib) What's even more amazing is that people are bidding on this monstrosity...PT Barnum's quote about a sucker born every minute comes to mind.
