Was this a late April Fool's joke or an attempt to pay off a portion of the Greek national debt?

If Greece could only sell 3,797,162 more of them, they could get quite close to paying off their national debt!

Does anyone know anything about the nib in this pen? I have a Waterman safety that has a nib with that picture on it (goat on a mountain) only my nib is a music nib. Always wondered where it came from and who made it.

The nib was made by Bock. Their logo can be seen in statue form in front of their headquarters in Germany.

And this guy has been trying to sell that pen for about a year. He's listed it as high as $250,000. Guess he's testing price points ;-)

I made the mistake on contacting him to ask why he thought the pen was worth so much. His response was along the lines of, "I couldn't find anything about it on the Internet, so it must be extremely rare."

Okay, now I have seen everything!

I don't see much on the internet about my graduating high school class from 1983, so my classmates must also be rare!Posted Image
