Google Vintage Pens UK. There are a few dealers.

 

ebay UK, where you can buy all sorts, good or bad.

 

FPN Classifieds either for sale or place a WTB add.

I just got a gold band version for 72 bucks (plus five dollar shipping) off of the 'Bay. Did I pay too much? It's not restored at ALL and the cap has a crack, but I guess it's in okay condition :/ I'm just bummed a little it couldn't have gone for cheaper but at least I finally own a 52 to complete with my 52v.

 

ETA: Sorry if I'm derailing your thread, OP. You can find them usually on Ebay. The only thing is at the moment, most of the listings show 52's in Spain. The site that one of the posters above linked looks like a good site for UK people. If you're open to ordering from a place in the US, I see one for sale on a popular pen vendor here as well. Let me know and I'll pm you the link.

I would point the op to one for sale but as it appears to be a one off post 2 weeks ago with no further viewings I doubt they will read it.

Thanks for that, Fergus. I was just going to reply with a site I've used in the past -- but no.

 

Why do people join a forum to post a question, and never look at it or keep people updated?

 

The only response is, "argh."

Let us know when it arrives, how you rate the service of Penamie (have been looking at that site myself before...) and some pics.

 

And nice gift!

I too keep one eye out but the prices are high. I suspect though the pens are in excellent shape.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
