    Who knows?
    Listen, I saw this post from 2006. I don't know if you are still around. Anyway, I have a bunch of minor brand fountain pens that I restore. I am trying to find a market for them. I am in the Los Angeles Ca. area. I exhibit at the annual Pen Show in Manhattan Beach. I have Remingtons, and lots of off the wall names, none of which are worth anywhere near $300. Mine are from $15 to $35 each, and each is ready to go. 1920's to 1950's. If you have an email address, I could send some images. Let me know. Thanks. David

    Mont Blanc pens are injection molded plastic. There's a seam somewhere in there that's polished over and invisible but there. They are fragile and they are extremely overpriced pens that Madison Avenue did a great job promoting. For a similar amount of money for a modern pen a Parker Duofold is a far better choice made of a solid casting of acrylic. For far less money an Esterbrook is a cool older pen that has nostalgia and history and uniqueness.

    Strange as it may seem I have been collecting both flashlights and fountain pens for more than 20 years....

    Would love to get over to the New york or LA pens shows from Australia one day...

    I generally collect old Pelikans , Parker Vacumatics and old Mont Blancs..


    Customs nibs can be ordered for most from Richard Binder www.richardspens.com

    or at www.nibs.com!

    Today I am EDCing my Toledo

    I wouldn't say I collect fountain pens, but I do use a green EF Pelikan 120 for note taking.

    Pelikans are know as great pens for a reason!

    Possibly Pelikans are the RA Clicky of the pen world....... bomb proof!

    Whoa, it's been five (5) years since I posted in here. Just curious about the outcome of the pen situation for Malpaso.

    Anyways, here's a pair of FPs that I collected, but don't know if they're truly collectibles!
