    So, let's see... Penspouse started this thread, asked the question, and then went off, supposedly, to count her ever multiplying pens. Some options here: either she forgot about the thread, intended to ignore the responses, been Shanghai'ed and is off on some Chinese boat somewhere, never had any Pelikans, or they're multiplying so fast she can't keep up. All in jest here, of course. If it's the latter, I'd like to know what ink you feed them.

    So, Penspouse ... (It has been almost two years now!)

    Cheers,
    Rich

    PS - I still can't believe no one has CP6 in their collection especially you folks with a lot of them. Like RR4U.

    One lonely 140 with a 120 cap at that.

    Sadly my only one is not even a pen ...... Pelikan Edelstein Aventurine ink.

    Wow, JustDaveyB that is an impressive expanding collection of Pelikan M620s.

    just one... and it skips terribly. But what do you expect for a clearance cheap pen. I think it was a script.

    I have three M400s and one 150 in my little collection. Two of the M400s are from the 1960s and were used by my parents when they were studying. They gave them to me when I started uni. The third I recently fitted with a new, finer nib. The "spare" nib now serves very well in my TWSBI Diamond 540.

    Too many for my bank account's own good. My favourites are 50:50 a 101n Tortoiseshell and a 420. But that's today!

    white M200 (currently a Binder XXF)
    blue marble M200 (currently Binder XXF; will be a Binder .7 CI soon)
    green marble M200 (Binder XXF)
    M215 lozenge (Binder .6 CI)
    M215 Orth. (Binder .36 CI)

    I really didn't like my first two 200s with standard f and ef nibs - wrote way, way too fat, I thought. But all is well now. I really like these pens.

    I had a Vintage 400, but I sold it---I want to try a Conklin Nozac!
    Now I'm back to just one--my white torty.

    Very few. Only six I think, a 200, 400, old style 600 (same size as 400), new style 600 (larger), 800 and 1050.

    None, since the leaky Pelikano Junior was thrown out. This will be corrected in the foreseeable but distant future.

    A little update on the status of my Pelikan collection: I recently added another M400 in green striated to my collection. Meh, you say? Boring, I hear you utter? Wait! Not so fast my friends...

    This one is special because it came with an 18ct solid gold Pelikan nib! Actually, it came with TWO 18ct solid gold Pelikan nibs, one in M and one in EF. The seller also added a genuine Pelikan pouch holding 3 fountain pens. Found it on eBay and all together it cost me about as much as a new M200.

    The pen and the nibs are in excellent condition. So, the current head count is 5, 4 M400s and one 150. And two extra nibs to swap in to some other nice pens (thinking of TWSBIs here).

    I'm a pretty happy customer...

    A very good selection. I agree the M6XX size is the most comformable for me as well. I must get a M605 Solid blue and M605 Black to add to my collection.
