For sale are Gate City Belmont pens. One gray and the other "Galapagos". The Gray one is fitted with a "Binderized" F nib that I have polished the gold plating off of on top (except in the engraving) to match the rhodium plated trim on the pen better. I also have a similar "Binderized" M nib, also polished to match, if you would prefer. The Galapagos one has an M nib, I think. I got a "Binderized" M nib with it, but I've cycled my interchangeable Bexley nibs so much that I have no way of knowing whether this is it or not, so let's just say it's not. We can talk about other nib sizes if you want.

Asking $120 for each shipped to US address via USPS Priority Mail. International destinations are usually around $10 to $20 more, depending on how it goes.

Can these pens use Bexley nibs ?

Can these pens use Bexley nibs ?

Yes. The parts for Gate City pens are Bexley-made. Even the clips are Bexley clips. The Galapagos actually came from Richard Binder with a Bexley-branded nib. Note that the nib units for the Belmonts are modified like nibs for Bexley piston fillers: the piercing tube and feed tail have been removed. However, a standard Bexley nib will work without this modification. It's just that it can't access the last drops of ink with the piercing tube in place.

Having sold the one, I think I'll hang on to the other awhile longer.
