    I would say that the light tortoise (third from the right) and the green/green (first from left) are both difficult to find, but the light tortoise is more expensive.

    And of course the light tortoise is my favourite :-)

    Thanks! It really is such a marvellous collection.

    I managed to get my hands on a Capless from 1964. Now I have a mini collection of 4:


    Pilot Capless 1964, 1975, 1994 and 2005

    Four pens from a scarce set of pens by Pilot from 1980-90s. I have a sneaking suspicion that my mustard orange pen is the same as shown in the second picture.

    The second pic of 13 pens is from Fountain Pens of the World by Andy Lambrou.

    You really need a matt black Deccan pen in that set :-) A really nice mini-collection of minimalist elegance.

    I call this one "Four of a kind"

    Four of a kind 1 (1).JPG

    Four of a kind 2.JPG

    Lotus Nobel

    Maiora Origine

    Leonardo DNA

    Aurora Optima

    All with stub nibs.

    It's interesting how different makers' versions on a black and orange theme differ.

    Any suggestions for others to match?
