Vintage Doufold/big Red



Recommended Posts

Hi all:

 

I am a bit new here and not sure of were to go so I thought I might put a question out there.

 

I am interested in a Doufold for my first vintage pen.

 

I was wondering if eBay is the best place. I was also wondering what an older pen might cost.

 

Am I in the $200.00 range?

 

Any help greatly appreciated.

Anyone like Ray Bradbury? Please read "The Laurel and Hardy Love Affair" if you have about 12 minutes.

 

You will not forget this wonderful gem that is largely obscure and sadly, forgotten. http://bit.ly/1DZtL4g

My suggestions :

 

1. Do your research on the Duofold and choose the one you want - single band, double band, 1920s or the 1930s streamline. The link below may help:

(I made the mistake of rushing in early to buy on eBay and ended buying the streamline duofold whereas I preferred the earlier 1928 model)

 

2. Check out the good Parker sellers like five star pens (no affiliations)

 

3. IMO $200 sounds a fair value, but I have seen pens go for more than $500 also (especially single band ones with flex nibs)

 

All the best

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
