For sale: Conid, Sheaffer, Visconti

Update: Conid and Visconti sold pending funds.

 

Three more pens for sale, to keep the collection down as a couple of very special new arrivals wing their way to me. By now, I hope you know the drill. All prices include UK shipping and are based on payment by PayPal friends and family, or bank transfer. I welcome offers if you’re buying more than one pen, but these pens are all lovely so I’m in no desperate rush to sell, so please don’t lowball me.

All pens are in good used condition. This time I’ve included a video writing sample. I believe I have boxes for all three of these.

I’ll ship internationally at extra cost — please run a quick check on a parcel from UK to your country on royalmail.com if this is likely to put you off.

Conid Regular Bulkfiller £490

Flat-top, titanium demonstrator (R DCB DB FT TI) with two sections, Delrin AND Titanium. Steel Conid Bock nib ground to wet fine cursive italic. Cost new inc shipping to the UK would be over 580 euros, and you’d have to wait until October/November to get it. If you want an additional gold fine nib with it, yours for an extra £100 (£135 new from Beaufort).

Sheaffer Legacy Heritage £300

Brushed 22k gold version, broad nib. This gives you all the benefits of a Sheaffer inlaid gold nib, but with a practical modern converter filler. Next to impossible to find. I’m only selling because I don’t like gold pens… I wish I’d kept the palladium version I had! You should know that the brushed gold finish does show cosmetic marks, and there are a couple here (see third pic).

Visconti Opera Master River Thames at Midday £600

This comes in a huge box with a bottle of ink. A big beauty of a pen made from the same resin as the famous London Fog. Long comfortable section, practical ink window, and all the facets on filler knob, barrel and cap line up. This has a fine 23k Palladium nib, which writes as it should, and the rest of the trim is silver. An edition of 28 only, long sold out, and this is number 3.
