I am on the verge of buying the above referenced pen but it has some blue staining near the section. Obviously this is a problem, especially at the price being asked. My question is does anybody have experience with cleaning staining on Conklin plastics? I've had suggestions from buffing it out (too near the threads I fear) to using a diluted bleach solution. As this is only one of these I've seen in two years of collecting, I want it but don't want to screw it up. Any suggestions?

I hardly can be absolute on this, but once actual superficial ink has been cleaned from plastic, I've had little luck removing staining.

Thanks for your input.My guess was in line with David's comments. The seller said he thought htey would come but wasn't willing to do it himself. That set off alrm bells and sent me to the Board. It's been a hard color to find and even though he wants top dollar (actually above top dollar) for it and even though it has condition issues, I really hate to walk away from it. I'm stuck on the horns of a delimma it seems, sigh...
