Was looking at this posting on etsy and trying to determine if these are fakes.

 

It looks like the cap retention clips are black and not silver. Has Lam'y changed this from their silver clips?

Hello Bchambers,

 

Good for you; you have a keen eye - I don't know if I would have spotted that - but I think you just saved yourself from getting screwed. 👍

 

Both of mine have silver wings, too.

Let me know when you get it and how it looks. 

I really want a Lamy 2000 but don't have the money to get "screwed" if it is a fake.

Sure. Not worried really. Used paypal so they can deal with it it's not right.

Thank you.  There were two sellers at about the same price.  Which one did you order from?

The clip ring is actually missing from the photos, that's why it looks black.

I wondered if that was the case or if there was a black clip.

thank you

Who told you that? Is that what Goulet Pens did too? I doubt it.

 

Go to your favourite search engine; enter Lamy 2000. Click on IMAGES. You'll see endless photos without evidence of the clip rings.

The link you provided to Goulets website shows the Silver rings in all of the uncapped photos. Inthe first photo the pen is rotated so that the stubs are at the top and bottom of the barrel in profile..

Hero makes a Safari clone now.....been doing it for some 8 years.

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.

That's good. There's lots of scams out there.

I won a bid on an iPad a few days ago and started a conversation with the seller regarding shipping. He had received an email from someone else claiming they had won the auction and wanted it sent to a different address. You have to be careful on those sites.
