    Default Can anyone ID these Bexley models

    Title says it all. I picked them up for the right price and am just needing an ID on the models.

    That looks like the Gaston "white cat in a snowstorm" special... :-)

    A photo might help. From the square bracket, looks like something may have gone wrong with the upload - that happens to me often enough.

    Apparently the Perlson exclusive (that particular cap/clip style) is 1 of a 100 (not sure if it was 100 total, or 100 of each color).

    The intrepid will most likely stay with me, the pearlson special will end up on the ebay sales block. They both have 2 tone broad bexley steel nibs.

    I had four Bexley Perlsons in different colors, though three have been sold. I do not think they were numbered at all.

    I quite like some of the Bexley pens I see on ebay when I'm in the US. They never seem to appear on ebay UK though.

    The first pen I ever bought from another "forumite" was a Bexley "America The Beautiful" with an 18ct stub nib. It's always filled with Diamine Tchaikovsky ink.

    So what do you think the Pearlson Special is worth? I cant track down any past sales of these.

    2 tone Jowo broad nib. Looks to be in good plus condition. (Sellers pics)

    Since there was a cart left in it, guessing you're going to need to give it a good flush and maybe check for corrosion on the nib (particularly under where the ink would have been left sitting).

    Bexleys are nice pens, and the workshop where thay re made is in Columbus OH

    Really nice people, and nice pens

    Indeed it shall. The Intrepid arrived this morning, pulled the nib unit & section. 3 pases through the ultra sonic cleaner and a tip down on a paper towel wick followed by a 40x loupe examination before my first inking. It got a taste of Diamine Presidential Blue. Smooth broad line as expected, it's a big Orange comfy magnum sized pen./ I dig it. I cant decide if i should name it MAGA, Mr. President or Don.
    heh.

    You didn't look hard enough. :-)

    I posted four of these for sale earlier this month and have sold three, with one left. See numbers 28-31 in my post:
