Hi all,

 

I just googled it, FWIW, 30 to 99 years old is "vintage"; anything 100 years old or older is "antique."

 

There you have it. :D

Thank you corniche.
Time is one aspect, there are other aspects should be considered, I think.

If we go by the Ebay definition - anything over 3 minutes old is "vintage" as well as being "rare", "mint" and "classic".

 

To me the word vintage merely means that the item belongs to a specific time period, that time period could be a year, a decade, a century or what ever fits the bill. Using that I could say that a new pen is "Vintage 2015" or an older pen is "60's Vintage".

 

To me the time period is important as I'm a collector not a user, but as a collector quality is equally important as is rarity (lack of availability!). To someone looking for a pen to use the availability might the most important factor.

Horses for courses I guess ...

This is an exceptionally clear exposition. Much appreciated.
