Older picture, I replaced some of these since this was shot, and might have even got rid of a few. Interests change, wane, and other priorities. I still got the case though...

Here's an example of a tough Long Island color. Sorta looks like egg drop soup. I don't know of many of these that have survived. Color was terribly unstable. This was the best example I found in many years of collecting. This color, is a "high number" long island color.

Most expensive chilton (or any pen I ever bought.... this one was a financial setback, but I still look at it a s a crown of my collection. How often do you get opportunity to buy ultra rare, new, pen and pencil sets?

Here's 3 years and $300 later.... just for a nib. I think the price is still a deal, if you need one...

I can remember, when all I dreamed about was to own a turquoise long Island, and here's one that I passed along, since the color wasn't as good as the other couple examples I accumulated. Weird how times change in collecting this stuff for a while.

Another high number Long Island color... this one was a 7 year project, I bought the pen, with a damaged cap from the late Al Mayman, finally located a great parts pen, and made one great pen, one decent example. Here was the great pen.

I love the quill clip on the carnelian. I'll look about and see if I can find a Chilton or two to photograph and post...
