Your photo wasn't coming through, so I thought I would post another. I have one of these--they are beautiful, but very hard to find. If Pelikan released this finish in an M600 size, they would sell as fast as they could be made.

The Limited Edition M620 Shangai was quite similar to this M300, unfortunately nowadays it is not easy to find one.

Try to find an old Montblanc Carrera ( iirc late 70s/early 80s) They can be found on ebay for quite little money. Bright orange with black cap.

I was going to suggest a Delta Dolcevita, but that might be a few dollars out of your price range unless you are willing to take a bit of time and watch Ebay.

 

I have seen a couple of the Oros go for the $150.00 range over the last year or so. And they are amazing!

 

I watched a Delta Dolcevita Stantuffo Federico Oro GT go for $147.00 a week or so ago. The shipping was horrible, but again if you will watch with patience it will eventually pay off.

 

Good luck!

Of course, how about the Pelikan Burnt Orange? A bit expensive - in the $400-$500 range, but a piston filler and Pelikan quality. It's an M800 size, so pretty big.

My favorite,

Waterman Carene in Coral? Gold trim unfortunately, but gorgeous colour. Not so common, but you can probably get one in your price range with patience.

Sheaffer VFM comes in both Orange (bright orange) and "Strobe Maximum Orange" (darker red-orange); they have chrome trim and a muted sparkly finish on brass body. Only takes short standard cartridges though and only comes with medium nib I believe.

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

Here is another vote for the Conklin All-American. I have a F nib which is a juicy, smooth writer which wrote perfectly write (pun intended) out of the box!post-2223-0-43471200-1495486950_thumb.jpeg

Parker Big Red ball pen.

If you want a fountain pen, you can frankenpen it by replacing the section with the section/nib of I think a Cross Apogee.

 

Nope, Cross Solo.

Although RRP is way out of the $150 price range GvFC burnt orange sometimes pops up very near to your desired $$

Wow, that's pretty! I wasn't aware of this colour.

Where can I find one of these? The Akkerman Duofold is my favourite modern Parker.

 

Other than that, Parker Duofold Centennial Orange and Delta Dolcevita.

 

For OP's price range, the Leonardo Officina Italiana Furore Orange.

 

Then there is the PW Akkerman Special Edition Orange Parker Duofold Centennial.

I love this picture! That special edition duofold is gorgeous. I wish I had one. I would pick that or a MB Hemingway as my favorite orange pen. That color orange reminds me of a historical time that got me attracted to pens in the first place. There is also a Pelikan M800 Burnt orange that is similiar but sadly no ink window.

 

Eta - since these are not in the op's price. I would get a Bexley. I saw a few on ebay and indy pen dance in burnt orange in your price range. They also have a vintage shape which is what I love about that color and style.
