Parker 45 Coronet Set

Happy days - today's post brought me the final pen that I needed to complete my set of Parker 45 Coronets :)

http://pencollect.co.uk/personal/23.jpg

The Coronets were introduced in around 1967 and featured a colored anodized aluminum body, a wider clutch ring then the regular 45 Flighters and a unique marking among the 45 family where the Parker logo is inscribed in line with the clip. Less easy to notice, they tend to be 1mm shorter in length then the 45 Flighter and are lighter in weight. Colors are Red, Blue, Grey, Green, Brown (often called Orange) and Black.

Nice and mouth wateringly sweet. Lol. Congrats on completing the set. After amassing 80 or so 45s , I havent been lucky enough with the Coronets.

 

Congrats again , Spikey Mike.

Spikey Mike, are the clipless ladies 45s rare? I've got a silver one NIB.

Yes - they tend to be quite sought after ... especially NIB.

This is the standard "Silver Brocade" pattern (there is a gold one as well) with the blue green ends and body. There are other versions, for example with black plastic pieces instead of the blue/green - these are even harder to get hold of!

Wow those do look nice. I like the look of the Silver Brocade one as well, but I don't think I'd like a clipless pen.

How about the matching pencils? They are hard to find FP & pencil, even around SE WI.

      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
