Omas issued a Limited Edition set of pens in 1999 to honor the 80th birthday of Nelson Mandela. Each has its own theme and is adorned with artwork inspired by South African artists. The pens are executed in bright enamel with sterling silver furniture and trim.

Here is the hard to find red pen from that set, titled "The Struggle". It is number 0451/1600. The cap bears a facsimile of the signature of Nelson Mandela and is fitted with a silver medallion with an "80" signifying the milestone birthday. The blind end cap has a silver medallion bearing the piece number from the Limited Edition: 0451/1600. The 18k gold nib is marked "M" for Medium.

As far as I can tell, the pen has never been inked. I tested it with water and the piston operates, properly taking in and expelling water. Sterling silver does tarnish with age, and I left it with a light natural patina. You can easily polish it to a full shine with any silver polishing cloth if you so desire, or I can do it for you. I do not have the box.
