Superb. Can't think that I've ever seen these nibs before.

 

How did you come across them?

The #1200 is from Barry Rose. I found the #60 on eBay last year for £40.

I forgot to mention that the nib on my #1200 was quite long and stamped '53' at the base.

Thank you! I've always enjoyed CS pens, an old world charm and solid writers.

 

Superb set. Really nice. Looks to be in excellent condition. :thumbup:

Good old Barry, he does come up with some great items...and eBay, if you're canny. :thumbup:

 

Have just inked this pen...

CS Churchill lever filler, from around 2008. Have a fine nib installed for the moment.

Hello FPN

 

I am embarrassed to say I don't KNOW which CS I am using! I lost my 'register' - that sheet that was in the bottom of my pen case with occupants origin/vintage/details...and mea culpa, I had not gone digital with the intel.

 

I have several CS pens, to my delight and several have come from Barry too! A wonderful pen friend.

 

I had always thought this pen was a No. 27. I hadn't used it in quite some time and recently brought it out and fell completely in love with it again. However, I have come to suspect it is NOT a No. 27 from the cap shape - and I just don't know where to go to find it's actual provenance, per se.

 

Any and all advice very much appreciated.

 

Best regards from Ireland —

Trish

What a beauty! I've always wanted a lever woodgrain Marlborough but alas I've not been THAT lucky! Always great to see your collection MalcolmH

Looks like a #217 from the 1940s to me.

Streamline C.S models came just after the second world war.

 

Is there no model number?

Hello and thanks so much, I just looked at that link and you've nailed it.

In all the time I've had the pen, I never looked for a model number until now and you are spot on, No. 217, it was right there all the time. I feel like a woodentop.

Thank you so much for your help!

 

Best,

Trish

...and for fun, I DO know the model number of the one I'm using this morningIMG_1468.JPG, it's a No. 476 restored for me by Barry a few years ago and I love that one too!

I thought I had added a photo, apologies. I'm not sure where I went astray.

 

 

 

That's a beauty!

I think Jonathan Donahaye dubbed this colour Bottle Green. Lovely.

Very nice pairing, Khan.

 

Good to see the less common black with gold veins version. :thumbup:

Thank you, MalcolmH. The one with the gold veins version is the CS 60 Executive.

Yes, I just adore both of them. I recently found an ink I'm dying to use with the Bottle green one, (silliness, I know, but...) it's a green based Diamine sheening ink called 'November Rain'. I cannot wait till it gets here :-) https://www.mountainofink.com/blog/diamine-november-rain

Not silly at all.

 

I have 44 green inks, and November Rain will be my 45th...now that's silly...and I'm excited to try it. :D

 

Maybe in one of these pens...
