Pilot Maki; unknown ladies pen

15 November 2014 - 07:43 PM

I was gifted these two pens this week.


The Maki I recognize, but I don't know which of the many Pilot put out, its age or pedigree.


The ring top has no markings but the 14K nib.  It is about 2-3/4 inches closed.  It was a friend's mother's school pen so I suspect it is from the late 30s or 40s.


Any ideas about one or the other.  And is likely the ring top could have a replacement lever?


Many thanks.

I'm heading to Pittsburgh shortly and have a few pens that need some attention.  Does anyone have a recommendation for this City?


Many thanks.

Does anyone have a clear record of all the Lady pens that came out of Waterman.   I have one left and will find a photo and post it in tomorrow, but wonder if there is a bible for these as several appear similar on line, and one or two appear to be more valued than others.

Just got the okay from David to become a Nut.


I've been using a fountain pen since my father put one in my hand nearly at birth, which is many, many years ago.  However, I don't qualify as a collector as much as an "accumulator."  Have a variety of pens from inexpensive Varsitys to nice to handle vintage.


Hope to keep using them with pleasure.
