Please Help Me Identify This Bexley!



Recommended Posts

I'm trying to identify this pen, which I initially thought was a Bexley Corona until I realized it's a cartridge/converter pen rather than a piston filler (and there are minor cosmetic differences, like the extra gold-toned band at the bottom). It's definitely a Bexley Summer Sunset "something," as its got a Bexley nib and the "B" on the clip. Any help would be appreciated!image.jpg

I got a Red Corona three years ago. It was piston fill. Later versions include the cartridge/converter system. I made this discovery when I inquired further of a Corona that bore a price tag much lower than the one I bought. Sometimes, one has to be more curious. I don't know whether both are still available.

That's a beauty! I read somewhere about a Corona C/C, don't remember exactly.

That is a Bexley Corona. The Corona line was offered in both as a piston filler and later as a C/C (at a lower price point). They were also available with either a steel or 18K gold nib.

Ah-HA! I had no idea Bexley made a cheaper Corona. I was afraid for a moment that I had acquired some kind of knock-off or Frankenpen, but it's nice to know it's legit. Thanks to everyone for the info!

      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

      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
