    If that is your criteria, then I most definitely aspire to be a dud!

    @markiv, those are excellent sample of a mini-collection!

    I just happen to take this family photo this morning: A row of Diamond Points.



    And an authentic Waterman's pen wrap (who knows how old it is) as the background

    I'd like to think I have been lucky to have found these but there is incredible wisdom in "you buy the dealer and not the pen". Networking is critical in gaining access to knowledge of unicorn pens let alone buying one.

    Back to topic; Thank you all - very kind.

    PS: My collection mostly comprises of vintage European and pens with interesting fillers. I hope to share more of them in future.

    What a fantastic set of celluloids!!!

    Omas: We will have to kill 352 - the lattice celluloid is infeasible.
    Diamond Point: Hold my beer

    Somewhere in Heaven (for pen brands):

    Diamond Point: Can I have my beer back?

    LOL - This perhaps is a bit dark but here goes nothing -

    One's most hated pen brand: Wait you guys have beer there?

    BIC. They screwed up the good stuff when they went on a buying spree.

    Another theme I go after is clones!
    Here are a bunch of Duofold inspired pens from Europe
    T to B: Lapis Osmia, Crazy No-name, Red marbled Ripet, Apple green Luxor.

    I was not a fan of metallic pens till I was introduced to OMAS 360 form factor. Here is a mini-collection except for the T2 in the bottom.
    The topmost one is a uncommon piece made out of Aluminium.
    Happy Thanksgiving.
