    Default Guess How Many Ink Cartridges Are In This Tin to win a Free Vintage Pen

    Simple concept whoever guesses the correct or closest number gets the pen. Happy to post wherever. The pen is a Platignum Varsity likely from the 50's or 60's. A school or budget pen from this period. A perfect first foray into vintage pens. I will restore the pen to a high standard.

    I will cover all the cost however all I ask is that pen goes to someone who will actually make use of it. If you don't think you will feel free to guess but state non entry. Also I'm looking to send it to the direct recipient not to be passed onto someone else.

    I will at one point or another select a winner this will likely be at start of November.

    p.s. I have no idea how many there are that's what the next 20 mins is for.

    The Varsity is one of Plaitgnum's better pens.

    I believe that there are about 138 ink cartridges in that tin. I would love this pen, I am a senior in highschool and take all my notes by hand. I have been looking for a good daily use pen. Unfortunately, this addiction, to fountain pens, is not a cheap one. However, I still find it worth every penny! I hope I get this!

    Nobody has quite guess the right answer but someone only 4 out. I'll end it early if someone does. I might throw in one or two other things as well.
