The seller asked me something like forty dollars and I bought the pen because I found it very nice.
Again, during a Washington Fountain Pen Super Show but this time in August 2011 I saw a similar pen gray with red speckles with a CONKLIN feeder and a warranted gold nib ( second pen from the left on the first photo ). Another forty dollars and I was more intrigued than when I bought the first one !
The first three photos were worked on by my friend João Pavão Martins to whom I wish to thank.
Second photo with details of the first three pens: two Conklin Crestor and one Conklin All-American
After coming back home from the Show and still during the year of 2011 I bought on Ebay a similar jet black pen set ( same engraved clip, same lever filler, same Conklin feeder and same Warranted gold nib ) but this time inside a Conklin box !!!!! It was too much coincidence ( third photo ) .
During the month of January 2012 I bought on Ebay another similar pen in jet black but this time with a barrel´s imprint: CONKLIN CRESTOR made in USA !!!!!! The mistery was unraveled four years after I bought the first pen !!!!! See next photos.
Now, the next step is to discover to what enterprise ( ? ) belonged that monogram with crossed arrows because everything points toward a custom order . What do you think ?
