Pelikan 101N Tortoise

Hello,

 

I think this is simply a language misunderstanding.

"Mint" does not mean new.

"Mint" means like new, ,.,....... but not new.

 

If you would have stated New rather than Mint, everything would be understood.

I hope I am explaining myself clear enough ?

 

I repeated myself because I asked if they were new, and you replied that they were Mint.

Twice.

 

thank you,

Rafael

sorry, I thought in mint means: brand new

if the pen looks like new, we will say: near mint.

 

so, the pens are brand new.

Thank you for explaining that.

 

I will look under the rug, and see if I can find some money.

 

best regards,

I disagree that "Mint" means like new, but not new. For me, mint means factory new, never used.

 

Here is Richard Binder's definition of mint:

 

"A term adopted from numismatics, to describe an item that is in new condition, nominally exactly as from the factory. Most collectors interpret mint to mean that the item shows no signs whatsoever of use, not even the tiny dings or scratches that could appear on a coin in mint condition."

Here is Richard Binder's definition of mint:

 

"A term adopted from numismatics, to describe an item that is in “new” condition, nominally exactly as from the factory. Most collectors interpret “mint” to mean that the item shows no signs whatsoever of use, not even the tiny dings or scratches that could appear on a coin in mint condition."

Prosimon, I think the issue is settled. Mint does not mean new. Binder's definition makes that perfectly clear. If you were buying underwear and there was no box or plastic covering but the sales-person told you that the item was "mint," would you still consider that new? I should hope not! Read the definition over again.

U.S. buyers should be aware that pens that have not been not imported to the U.S.A. by Chartpak, the authorized U.S. distributor, are referred to as "gray-market" merchandise, and Chartpak will not provide any warranty service for them. If you require service, you will have to send your pen back to the distributor operating in the country in which your seller is located.

 

This is not to say that gray-market pens are counterfeit, illegal, junk, or anything other than first-quality Pelikan pens; it's just an advisory that you should be aware of your options for service should your pen need it.

Today, I just received my order - one in <B> nib - hand-delivered via registered mail.

 

Flushed a few times, and filled with WM Florida Blue.

It writes beautifully , as is usually expected of Pelikans. :thumbup:

 

Shipping was quicker than expected.

 

The item is brand new with the G5 box.

No issues whatsoever. :D

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
