Extra Find, Extra Fine.

About a two weeks ago spotted this at eBay:

A Balance II Classic Black fountain pen with a BIN price of $79.95 and even the squeeze converter is included! Looks like a steal, but wait, the shipping charge to Canada is $35.25. That's too much and will push the price up to $115.00. Well, it's still a good price but not a real deal. Shall I or shall I not?
Then, I noticed that the nib is NOT the originally supplied 14 ct solid gold Lifetime--it is substitute! A gold plated NoNonsense. Bummer. Shall I or shall I not
Last Thursday, the thingie arrived. Here it is:

No, I didn't buy the whole thingie. I just made an offer to buy the nib and it was accepted, I now own a rare NoNonsense Extra Fine gold plated nib! Never seen that before,

Nice. I love old Sheaffer's cartridge/school pen X (304) and rarer XF nibs. This is a far cry above that and trust it will be a real treat. Hope you'll show off the results.

My XF Grand Connie nib is a little finer than this but there is a perceptional difference in smoothness. This NoNonsense 23K gold electroplated XF has the glide of an F nib! The notebook is dollar store bought; fountain pen friendly. Made by Pinkfoot Co. Korea. $2.99 Cdn.115 pages.

Looks great--and what a nice hand. All works very well together. Congrats on the unusual, fun find.

Thanks, You guys don't realize how much influence you have had on my handwriting, It wasn't like that before I joined this group.

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
