Kinda random but I found a 69-71 Parker 51 fountain pen complete with box, perfect condition and in dove grey.

Pretty freaking great pen :)

Well found. Those are getting quite rare now, especially in NOS state like yours. I went through most of my school years with a hand-me-down P51 in teal blue with a broad stub nib. Back in those days, we were all required to write with a "proper" pen.

I actually prefer a fully exposed "traditional" nib, but the P51 has to be one of the best writers ever made.

What's the nib in yours?

This one had a fine which for me made my writing look woeful (yep blame the pen)
Somewhere I have a twsbi eco 1.1 stub which is a joy to write with and cheap comparatively.

What’s Aberlour 18yr old smell and taste like???
will tell your when I get to try it! On special at Nicks and with a good recommendation from a friend.

@Mark1966 whiskey tasting at yours then?
sure - but will have to be via Zoom to maintain social distancing. I will drink and you can watch? 🤣

How devastating! Being Scottish born, I’m fully qualified to offer assistance.
Can you get to Canberra by Sunday night?
