Wow!  50¢?  And with a 9xxx series nib at that?  I think that definitely makes you "Sumgai of the Week"!  Even back when I was going after Esterbrooks (when the prices were still pretty low), I think the cheapest I ever paid was about five bucks for a J series pen.  I may have paid a bit less for a 2xxx nib (no pen, just the nib unit) on eBay.  

Now, of course?  The ones I'm still trying to get are NOT cheap by any stretch of the imagination.  I don't think I've ever seen a 9312 Italic nib for sale (although a few years ago I met a woman from I think Oregon who was a calligrapher at something I was at for the other hobby, and she had a J pen with a 9312 nib and some unidentified Pelikan clipped to her neckline and we proceeded to geek about pens and inks.  She was astounded that I even knew what an Estie was, and I was dumbfounded by the nib because I've NEVER seen one for sale anywhere.  Don't know what model the other pen, the Pelikan, was, but she said she'd had Richard Binder do work on the nib for her.  And of course, the 8440 Super Cartography nibs are largely unobtanium... (I mostly wanted it because I was going to give my husband his choice of the Esties -- of course he picked the red J on me... :angry: -- but wasn't sure if even an EF manifold nib would please "Mr. Bic Fine Point.  And of course now he's got the used Pilot VP with an EF nib on it and likes it a LOT....)

If you ever want to try an original 312 dip pen (aka Judge's Quill), let me know. Had forgotten they made a fountain pen version.

Thanks, but dip pens remind me too much of the calligraphy classes I've taken which were all with Speedball nibs.....

My 9000 series are 9450,9550 and there is a 9461 somewhere. (Two 9550's)

 

Need to try and find some other ones.
