    Acquired Eight Pilot Supers in need of restoration, with my eye on the one that has a "Coarse" nib that I just finished restoring tonight.

    Also have three Montblanc (320, and two 221) that I'm evaluating cleaning/repairing and will have to decide if I want to offer something to trade for them (if not, they'll at least be sent back clean and ready to use to him).

    The three oldest ones are from 1958 (January, July, and August), a couple from 1966, and one from 1962. The rest are within that range depending on nib. One of the two 50G has an incorrect nib in it, which may be why the section is cracked on that one, shown next to another 50G with what appears to be the correct nib size. Also seeing that the pens are from 1950s, the large 1975 nib is definitely not a match.







    They also look interesting in infrared :P

    I have several Pilots in my collection, but I don't think I have ever seen a Pilot Super. Is that a sort of reverse hood?

    No, basically the same style as the 1970s,1980s Pilot Elites.

    The supers are tab fillers with sacs from the 1950s and 1960s

    Nice. I have the same one with a stub. These are excellent value considering the range of nib grinds to choose from.

    Yes, they are. I also have the Captain's Commission and the Churchman's Prescriptor with broad italic nibs. Well-made heavy-duty pens.

    My kids bought me these for my 50th birthday. I sent my son the new Twsbi Diamond 580 in Prussian Blue with a nice bottle of ink for his birthday.

    I surprised myself once again. Stumbled across pictures of the Montblanc Writers Edition Charles Dickens and fell in love with the greengreyblue-ish colour of the 146 sized barrel and the over-the-top supersized silver cap. Searched around for two days and finally learned that there is still NOS available ex-Montblanc. Still expensive, but i got a good deal, so i immediately pulled the trigger, and now it is on order. I did ask the retailer to have Montblanc check the pen though. Perhaps the piston could use some fresh silicone grease after laying in the warehouse for almost 20 years...

    Hi,

    I've been looking for a second Swan eye dropper and so this one made it's way from England.
    It is a 3202 MED with stub nib made ca. 1915 to 1920 with an original leather pouch.
    I think it was good luck to find such a nice pen...
    Some photos, the Swan as it came, not much to do for restauration, needs some reallignment of the tines.
