    Default Inherited Pen Collection

    I recently came into a large collection of mostly fountain pens. I have pictures connected to the google link below. Let me know if any of the collection is of interest and if you want more information or photos.

    Hello @pkelly1261.
    Welcome to FPG. Congratulations on having acquired such an impressive collection of high end pens.

    Please do not be offended by the fact that many of us are skeptical about the legitimacy of posts like yours. Often such posts have a ill-intended scammer lurking inside of them. Perhaps the best way to reassure us about you and your collection would be for you to tell us a little bit more about your collection. For example, are you new to pens or have you been a FP user / collector for a while? If you are a collector, what are your interests, etc.? And, how did you come to acquire such an amazing collection?

    If you are friendly with any FPG members why not have them add a post here letting us know that they are acquainted with you.

    For sure, not all who join FPG and the same day make a post of this nature are frauds but enough are that those of us who have been around a while are skeptical. I hope that such is not the case here and that this is just the first of many posts to come from you. Please begin to establish some trust and credibility with us. If you are "legitimate" you will be glad you did........

    Careful-- that one in particular is a FOUTAIN pen and not a FOUNTAIN pen!

    Is the fact that the OP has not replied to any of the posts here about these pens not a good sign? I donít know. If it were me, Iíd be defending myself, or saying something to reassure everyone that Iím not a scammer.

    Is it possible that the OP was just here to offload the hoard and someone already made them an offer on the lot that the OP found equitable and has no other interest in the community?

    Perhaps you are familiar with the Latin phrase "Res ipsa loquitur?"
    It means "the thing speaks for itself."

    OK, I admit - that's me. I'm trading a used bridge I own in Brooklyn for the collection.
