    It really is a lovely pen. Congrats on being this week’s Sumgai! Those old Parker fountain pens found in the wild often just need a flush to write beautifully.

    And here I thought I was pretty slick picking up a Sheaffer Balance from 1934 or '35 for $20...

    I don't have much of a poker face, but luckily, my "I can't believe you want so little" expression looks pretty much like the "I can't believe you want so much" one. Anyway, congratulations.
    Frankly that sounds like the perfect poker face.

    Congrats on the find. That sounds like a very good day. Sometimes you're just in the right place at the right time. I don't know if I have ever been sumgai about material possessions, but some of my friends made me feel like sumgai when I met them

    When sumgai happens to one of us, it happens for all of us! In camaraderie. In sharing the excitement.

    Congratulations to you!
