i got this pen in manila yesterday from the US. very nice pen and packaging (we know how CS packaging can go over the top--this diamond-shaped box actually goes into a larger rectangular box, which i had to leave in the US for easier shipping):

it's a bit shorter than CS' flagship churchill, but a lot heavier; almost feels like marble. what attracted me too was its tortoise-y "bracken" color, a perennial favorite of mine (my churchill is bracken, too). and as i've learned to expect from my CS pens, the medium nib wrote smoothly out of the box.

 

this pen came out in 2006 in a limited edition of 60 pens, to mark the 60th anniversary of new york city's famous fountain pen hospital. this is 11/60 (found the tiny imprint near the top of the cap).

from what i can gather online, it was originally priced at around $600. (i got this on ebay for a fraction of that, so while i could make a tidy profit by selling it, as i'd first intended, it makes more sense for me to keep it in the collection, because i'm not likely going to see another one appear on the market at that price, if i ever see one again.)

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

Yes, you should keep that pen. It's gorgeous and it commemorates an institution of the pen world.
