    Default Vintage Pelikan boxes for bits and pieces

    If you are a Pelikan collector and have need of small boxes to hold your spare nibs or other small parts, search eBay for "Pelikan typewriter" and you will be rewarded with a lengthly list of items, including many vintage Pelikan boxes that held typewriter ribbons. Some are colorful, some are tin, some are bakelite.

    I found one of those at a flea market recently for 50 cents. I leapt on it instantly and found a Graphos in its box for one euro the same day. Okay, not an Emege Magnum but I was happy none the less!
