    Found this on the internet. It's not a photo that I took, and it's the wrong kind of pen (I can't bring myself to say or even type the b*llpoint p*n word), but I though y'all might enjoy seeing it anyway.

    This might be more along the lines of what I'm supposed to be posting:

    Skyline nib (from my archives, such as they are). The beads are Yak bone! Not something you see everyday.

    This was the only prototype that made it out of the Esterbrook corporate office without a violent end. The drawings and remainder of the prototypes were snatched curbside by one Esther Brook diverting them from the back seat of the company patent lawyer's Cadillac on the streets of Cherry Hill. Esther's Kaiser-Fraiser raced to the old factory in Camden, and she burned all the prototypes on the roof, thereby preventing the filing of a design patent for the new Meisterbrook range.

    Esther later turned up in Hamburg with the drawings, but the German authorities in Hamburg refused to cooperate in an extradition of Esther, so the entire project collapsed. This is the only artifact that remains from this important event in fountain pen history. It writes beautifully. I never post it.
    Beautiful pen and a wonderful story... you have a lovely piece of history. Thanks for sharing.
