Strange Goop On Clip


Recommended Posts

I was bidding on a "never used", "perfect TRIM without signs" M300 and couldn't help but notice this in the photos:




Then my gently used M200 arrived today and it had the same thing on the clip. What I had assumed was tarnish was actually a brown substance of some sort that wiped off easily enough (I did have to fold the paper towel over a thin screwdriver blade to get at the edge up against the plastic end cap) and the gold plating seems fine.


Just curious if anyone else has seem this or knows what it might be.

It's hard work to tell which is Old Harry when everybody's got boots on.

old dried ink?

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

RIP...200's once great nib, now a double ball.:crybaby::wallbash:
