Hi I am very new here, and new to pen restoration, for that reason please excuse my ignorance on the topic. I recently acquired a beautiful "Pick Pen". Everything seems great apart from the fact that the top of the cap is missing a jewel section or fennel and so the interior of the cap is open to the air when closed. Also, a part of the inside sleeve 20210914_183622.thumb.jpg.e656da1166752fa67f134e6c0b44ce7a.jpg that protects the nib came loose inside the cap. What's interesting is that upon removal I noticed that the material seems to be a charcoal sleeve.  It had broken up, but when placed together it makes a perfect half circle, I assume this is how it was originally inserted into the cap. Does anyone have any idea what the missing piece on the top of the cap looks like? The end of the barrel has a celluloid plug, it doesn't seem to follow the taper of the barrel and the surface is uneven and not particularly beautiful. My guess is that a similar plug was glued in the top of the cap. From my research and observation the nib seems to have a great degree of flex. 


Any input or advice would be helpful. Thanks

      @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.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
