  1. So I saw this this parker sonnet at my local book/stationary store. I didn't see any finish resembling the finish on that sonnet on parker official website. After googling for a while I found out that that was a parker sonnet laque moonbeam! It's a 1994 edition and it's still brand new, the price tag is $150. Is laque moonbeam a rare collector item now? I'm wondering if I should get that pen, if it were you would you take it?
  2. Here's what happened- It was 12:30 am, on Saturday night. I was browsing fountain pens online, and drooling over them as I have been for a while. I come across this kerala based website that sells vintage pens online. So I eagerly looked through their contents and was quite impressed with what they carried (Parker 21,51,45, vintage shaeffers, etc.) and also the prices. So I decided to order something. I was eyeing the Parkers, but the good colours were out of stock, and also, I wanted to check their legitimacy before putting too much money on the line, (I am a student living in a budget a
  3. Hello All! I am newer to the world of fountain pens/inks, excited to be here! As a noob to the community, I could not relate to this statement more - "The ever-reliable Pilot Metropolitan, an oft-cited gateway drug to full-blown fountain-pen addiction.” - YUP, first pen that started it all for me. I am trying to track down a bottle of the 'Noodler's Berning Red' ink from 2016 to purchase. I have not had much success, so I thought to ask the community directly. If anyone had a bottle they would be willing to part with/sell me, please reply to this post or PM me please, thanks so much!!
  4. Hi gang, Some of you may remember me as Bonhams Auctioneers former penman-in-chief. Well, I've moved on to San Francisco's PBA Galleries, and we're launching our debut Fine Pens sale on Thursday, July 19th at 11:00 am PST. Here's a link to the online sale listings: https://www.pbagalleries.com/view-auctions/catalog/id/454/ The catalogue goes to press today and will be mailed shortly. It's a fairly big sale, 361 lots, including many modern and vintage Montblancs; rare vintage eyedroppers from Waterman, Parker, Aiken Lambert, Edward Todd and others; limited edition Montegrappas, Namikis, S
  5. Hi, I was hoping some of you will be able to help me. My father had a collection of fountain pens which are now in my possession. His collection includes a few very prestige pens (from what I gather), including a Danitrio. I know nothing about fountain pens, so I need some help identifying the model of this pen (pics attached). I'd like to sell this pen, however knowing nothing about it, this is pretty difficult! I'm looking for the specific name & model, and perhaps even an estimate of how much this pen was purchased for so I can gauge the price I should sell at. Saying that, sho
  6. Sharing pictures of beautiful Platinum 3776 wood fountain pen.
  7. Hello All, Hope you're having a good week. There are rare pens and then there are super rare pens, this one is firmly the latter. We're delighted to be offering this stunning factory demonstrator Montblanc Meisterstuck 149 Fountain Pen. The pen has never been inked and is presented in outstanding condition (a couple of tiny hairlines on the barrel, but that's like being picky about a brush stroke on a Monet - your black 149 will probably have these, you just can’t see them). This pen has a fantastic history, with it being owned from new by the MD of a major pen retailer - it was used t
  8. Hi folks, a heads up for you Omas lovers; here are links here and here to a couple of very nice, pretty rare 360 with the Burkina Celluloid: http://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/3EwAAOSwIaFZKCbq/s-l1600.jpghttp://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/3EwAAOSwIaFZKCbq/s-l1600.jpg http://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/QHIAAOSwi8VZPIB1/s-l1600.jpg I am not affiliated with either of the sellers, just passing on a rare find, though an expensive one!

    Mont Blanc Starwalker?

    Hi. I wanted to know if this is a regular Starwalker model since i couldn't find any exact model picture. First off, a little about the origin of this pen, they belonged to my father, he had this MB and other three Stuckmeister (1 fountain pen (14K 585, 1 ballpoint and a mechanical pencil). All of these are at least 18 years old, the ballpoint pen has W-Germany on the top gold part, so probably they all are pre 1991. I'll probably start a thread on these. Anyone know anything about this pen?? Is it worth it? Thanks a lot.

    Rare Parker Vacumatic Identification

    Hello all, I purchased this Parker Vacumatic a while back at an estate sale but i don't know a lot about it. I was hoping you guys could help me out From what I've found, this pen seems to be a debutante sized model and it looks to have a speedline filler under the blind cap. The cap band on the pen is unlike any I could find on Richard Binders vacumatic page so I have a feeling it could be quite rare. The inscription on the barrel is quite worn and i can't quite make out the date code. Does anybody know more about his pen or what it would sell for in restored condition? Thanks in adv
  11. I am just beginning research on this MB Dumas Autograph Set and have been over to fountainpen.de which is typically a good first stop on the journey of discovery. They mention that it is known to be a rare set in its own right, but not much beyond that. They have a link to more information, however the link is dead. (I will notify the site.) I would really like to know why MB decided to create an Autograph set which I have to say is really nice. I like the "handwritten" note, and photo as well as the larger book box that contains all the pieces of the collection. I am sure the "handwritt
  12. Hello there!! Hopefully some might be able to help me with an ID of my Waterman My mother bought it YEARS ago, and I just found it after going through storage. I know it's worth something, but I'm having a problem identifying the *exact* model. There are similar pens around, but they are much thinner and shorter because they've all got #2 nibs, and this one has a #10. I've written to Waterman, but have yet to hear anything. I have seen other eyedroppers, but they do not have the overlay. Apparently, according to one guy, there were only 3 made in this era? Who knows if that's cor
  13. Greetings, I've come upon a lovely and brassing-free full cone cap overlay...but alas is missing the nib and feed. I've positively identified the nib I'm hunting for as an Aiken Lambert #1. If I find the nib, I can probably fabricate a feed by turning down one I have ... Let me know if you might have one kicking around in a parts drawer! Cheers, Morgan

    Parker Pen Help

    Hello Fountain Pen Network! This is my first post and I was hoping to receive some help identifying and valuing some Parker pens I recently received. Now, I know this is the "Fountain" Pen Network for a reason, but my pens are ballpoints. I currently have three ballpoint Parker pens I would like to have valued and 1 of them is not an Insignia. I have no clue what it is, so I would like help identifying it. The two I know about are a Parker Insignia ballpoint pen in the Athenes finish and 1 in the Sterling Silver finish. Both have Parker emblems/badges on them and I was wondering how this

  18. Hello all, I am asking some advise as I just came in possession of some PARKER Pens after my uncle passed away. He had a specialised shop and the pens I have were meant for selling, they are MINT in BOX and never been inked. I am totally new to this and I am trying to understand if they do have any particular value, as after researching online I found out the might be pretty rare. I might be interested in selling them, but I am not really sure which might be a realistic evaluation. I do have the following: Parker DUOFOLD CENTENNIAL Memorial Fund for disaster relief ITALIAN Version (n. 12

  21. While reviewing eBay and other classified sites looking for specific limited editions of Safari/ Al-Star pens, I've found that the 2004 Safari Orange Flame is well past the $200 mark as a NOS condition pen. What other Safari/ Al-star pens have reached such highs -aside from the Savanah and Terracota? Which do you think will follow suit?

    '64 Parker 75 Cisele

    Hello members, I don't know anyone personally who would appreciate this so I thought I might as well share it here. The newest addition to my modest collection; a mint, 1964 first-year Parker 75 "Cisele" with original box and numbered certificate of origin with corresponding engraving, for the Italian market. One curiosity for me is that it doesn't have any Italian silver hallmarks even though it was sold for the Italian market. I know at some point they did add them to the cap. However, the certificate of origin is from the registered Italian importer and distributor for Parker (API FANTU

    How Rare Is This Waterman Hemisphere Finish?

    Not long ago as a present, my grandfather gave me his old(at least 12 years old) Waterman Hemisphere fountain pen.After doing some research I found out that the finish I got is unenviable on the official site.The pen's barrel and cap are a dark blue colour and the clip and other finishes are golden.In addition on the box it says Leganza. Can someone tell me more about how rare the finish is and a bit of backup information?
  24. By now I'm sure everyone here thinks I'm off my rocker, but I've yet another obscure, weird product question regarding dip pen nibs. Ready? Anyone ever heard of a Laundry nib? It says LAUNDRY NIB right on it! Hardest dang thing to write with in the world. Hard as nails and ink will NOT stay on the nib. It was on one of the holders I purchased. The shape is much like a bank nib (which says BANK NIB on it), and quite round, quite large, but...it's just odd! (Not at home, so no pic at the moment.) Wonder if Laundry is a name and it's just a horrible generic nib, lol. There are the usual susp
