SOLD: 1971 Pilot Short Pen

This is a beautiful 1971 Pilot black and gold pocket pen.  The nib is not marked with a size but I would call it a fine nib.  The nib is 14k.  The nib is marked H171 for Hiratsuka January 1971.

This pen can be used with a CON20 convertor.  I can not be used with other Pilot convertors.

There are two flaws on this pen.  These photos are super-macro pictures so the damage looks bad.  The truth is that the flaws are hardly noticeable unless you are really looking closely and carefully.

To get a feeling for the size of the pen, I have included a pic of this pen in a tray with other pens.  Here: Long Murex, Striped Myu, Myu-701, THIS PEN, Platinum short pen, Platinum Bonita, Black Pilot, Navy Pilot, Green Lamy Safari and a Platinum #3776 CENTURY BOURGOGNE.

This pen originally sold for ¥2000 in Japan in 1971.

I am offering this pen for sale for ¥1800 with two Pilot cartridges of your choice (Standard pilot colors or a choice of 12 possible iroshizuku inks).  It does not include a convertor.  If you would also like a CON20 I can include it for an extra ¥250.  The current exchange rate is around USD $20 for the pen and $2.75 for the convertor.

If you are interested in this pen please leave a comment with your real email address and I will get back to you.  You can also send me email at tomattarashinu@gmail.com.
