    ...aaaaaaand I am totally hopeless... +1 to that list above.

    I recently bought a 100N with a BB-nib to die for. Sharply cut with insane amount of tipping... and the price wasn't that awful either.

    Anyway, the guy that I bought the 100N from also had a run of the mill green stripe "F" marked 400 with the usual wear to the cap trim edge... with another healthy looking BB-nib! Not as sharp though but it was also an early script nib with loads of tipping...

    And then he made me an offer that I simply could not refuse.

    Well, it should be on my way shortly. I am just wondering how on earth he had ended up with those? Maybe he inherited them? Or a lucky flea market find. The thing is, that 400 had a nib swapped to it post sale so it was made on purpose... need to ask him.

    I have half a Pelikan. Maybe even less because I don't even know if it works yet. I ordered an old 100n and it's in the mail.

    More than I need and never as many as I want (and a couple more arriving tomorrow)

    All bar 2 or 3 are at least 50 years old, and many a lot older than that. I'd get rid of the newest one (a Celebry) but I really like the nib (hate everything else about it, especially the metal section). I favour the lower numbered pens - nothing above than a 400 - as with the exception of my very special MB149, I really don't get on with heavyweights.


    This has been a very timely post as it made me go and tend to the flock a little - only to discover a favourite of my more modern chicks, an MC120 (or M150 with a fantastic 1.0 nib) has just dumped a pretty much complete fill of Doyou into the piston mechanism. I know what I'm doing this evening...

    I have four: two M200s, one M205 and one M215. If I had my wits about me when I started to buy, not yet collect, fountain pens, I would have stuck to pens like the Pelikan.

    Just recently added both a M100 with an M and a M205 Duo in transparent green with a BB nib to the flock.
