    Hello Azkid,

    I have just noticed your location!
    Is it true that Denver is a mile high (5280 feet) above sea level?

    Absolutely true! At least a few spots like the steps of the Capitol...

    Of course there's all sorts of variation in the area. I'm on the south end of the metro area at 5519 ft ASL.

    A shot comparing complete sets of Waterman Juniors and Eversharp Oxfords, both from the mid/late-1930s. I was intrigued to discover that both models shared the same range of colors:

    aka Estragon (FPN)

    WANTED: Vintage Pens with White Trim! > Sheaffer: Jr. Truncated (blue & black); OS Balance w/ reverse trim (grey/red vein); Balance (grey/red fleck) | First-Yr Crest (silver cap); Canadian Balance 5-30 (roseglow, ebonized pearl, green) | Waterman: Lady Patricia (persian, black ink vue) | Wahl-Eversharp: Half Coronet (rhodium cap); Doric (Cathay); Skyline (SS/Sterling Cap) | Rebadged Parkers from Diamond Medal and Webster (silver web, pinstripe, etc.)
