Omas Amerigo Vespucci Nib Unit

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Just recently got a few NOS Omas pens, and decided to ink one of them, picked an Amerigo Vespucci and inked it with Parker Quink blue-black, when started to write realised in is driping from under the nib on both sides, I want to take out the nib and re insert it, my question is if the feed and nib are friction fit or screw in?

 

Thank you in advance.

Hello,

 

It turned out to be a friction fit and was able to take out the nib and the feed, also did some adjustment to the nib to make it more wet, fixed it back and its all perfect now.

 

Best regards.

I received an Omas Amerigo Vespucci and a Pelikan Gunther Wagner set as an inheritance.

 

I have the inner and outex boxes (rectangular boxes), pen holder & parchment, wrap, and booklet of the Omas. It is in very good condition, just with some brassing on the Clip. I used it a little bit before removing the ink and the nib is a super smooth M.

 

The second set is a Pelikan Gunther Wagner (Blue Demonstrator or "Baby" Blue Ocean) size B. This set (fountain + ball point) had very little use. It comes with an ink bottle, blue and white boxes and booklet.

 

I washed off the ink and am here debating if I should sell the pens or not. I was told that if the pens are not used, the inside can dry up.

 

I need a knowledgeable opinion. I don't want to run the risk of keeping the pens and loosing them due to improper care!!

 

Thank you!!

Collections of several hundred of pens make impossible to use them all continuously, or to keep the internal part wet with water.

Having a dry pen do not give any damage, if this was the question.

Yes, thank you, this was the most important question!!

 

If I am not taking too much of your time, would you be able to elaborate a Little bit about current prices for those pens, and market in general?

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
