    That‘s correct Ron. And Fred, it‘s called:

    „Naturhistorisches Museum Basel“

    ...and I have a Medium nib in my „51“. The best I ever had.

    After a very long time I had the opportunity to buy this small group of Pelikan. All are in original condition and some are even unused.
    They still need to be restored and some parts replaced. I will share the work with you by showing some pictures from time to time.



    The most interesting thing to me, and the main reason for having bought the lot are the two boxes made of Bakelite. These are quite hard to find, and there are several different colors to find...

    Oooh! What a lovely little selection - I love the two IBIS's - are they gold-nibbed or wartime production?

    The boxes are gorgeous - and the inside writing looks immaculate.

    You must be very pleased

    So I started with the two other wartime Pelikan 100. They just needed a cleaning and slight polish. All three are near mint:

    another green:



    and a black one:



    these are modest but cool pens with quite good steel nibs.

    the green one has still a celluloid barrel, with no discoloration:



    this one has probably never seen ink.

    Wow...
    Question: both of the "green" ones seem more... turquoise (and more vibrant) in the individual photos than they do in the group photo.
    The group photo seems to be more representative of the pictures I've seen of green Pelikans.
    Which colour is more representative of what you see when you hold the pens in your hand?

    the angle of camera and light are completely different on the group shot and on the individual photos. I’d say that the individuals are closer to the original color than the group shot.

    I just worked on another two pens of the lot. The two Pelikan IBIS in gray marbeled celluloid. Both have not seen much use. They just needed a good clean and slight polish.





    There were also two Pelikan 100N in that lot. I also restored one of these. The condition of the pen is fine but used, so I think that I will let it go to someone wo wants to write with:







    I also put a matching pen and pencil in one of the boxes and took a picture. I really like it!



    ...as already said. These boxes were the main reason for me to buy that lot.

    I love the IBIS pair - we see them only rarely, but that last shot is awesome - they look fabulous in their little case! Great find

    in that lot, there also was this nice leather pen case:



    after a litte care, it looks nice again. And I found a picture of it in a catalog of the 1950's:
