This is my latest Bayard-- a 656, circa 1950s. Thanks again to ebay seller amateur25.

I decided to play up the pen's shade of green by contrasting it with foliage from our garden.

It's inked with Montblanc Red Chalk and the writing sample is written on Clairefontaine. The nib reads P and F with the crossed nibs logo and 18ct as well as 50.

Thanks for looking!

So Nice...... I look forward to see more of you

Thank you! I have more Bayards photographed in this Miscellaneous Brand thread.

Very nice pen!

I would guess it is rather later 1940ies, though :)

Thank you very much! Why late 40s, though, rather than early 50s?

Actually I think I`m wrong! Early 50s is very probably right.

 

The 30s-looking section threw me, as they became more streamlined in the late 40s.

Lacking any factual informations about French period pens, it`s often very difficult to tell.

 

Your Bayard has a distinctly 40s look, which deceived me!

(nice pictures, btw :) )

Thank you again! Who really knows, right? I find it bizarre what little information there is on these beautiful French pens.

Thank you. Great stuff!

The 656 is the Spécial Luxe, Laura.

Thank you for the info. Every little bit helps.

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
