    Default Imporium Number

    Hello All,

    I bought an Imporium yesterday at the Sheffield Pen Show. I am intrigued by the number printed on the section -

    1 03744

    Could it be a serial number? Date code? Any information gratefully received.

    Judging by the amount of red ink that has come out of it when soaking, it probably belonged to a teacher in a former life!

    Looking forward to filling it and trying it out.

    Can't comment on the number, but that's a personna not an imporium. The latter is a modern release with the same barrel and grip, one of the alternate caps that was considered, and the present Lamy 14k gold nib, where as the Personna had it's own 14k or 18k (depending on year) nib. If you got that for Imporium money then you got an absolute bargain at present prices (I'm after a black and gold personna to go alongside my black and gold imporium).

    Thank you dapprman. How ignorant I am. Indeed it is a Persona, and has the same nib shape as the Lamy Lady.

    I don't know what Imporium money is, but I'm happy with what I paid for it.

    Does this mean that I have to look for an Imporium to go with it?

    The general consensus is that the two nibs (depending on year) are better than the Imporium, something I just will have to test My problem is I want a personna for imporium money, but they seem to be going for around twice as much at present.
