My Newest Bexley - The Rare White Giant
Permalink Closed


Just got this NIB Bexley White Giant in the mail a few days ago after a successful Ebay Snipe Bid.  I'd been searching for one of these for a few years without success.

Even got it at a great price!!

Enjoy looking

Thats so far beyond cool I'm nearly at a loss for words.

I'm delighted you finally scored one on your wish list. Is there any chance you could shoot it next to say a 51, 52 or snorkel so those in our community who haven't had the chance to see one of these in scale, can.  I've only seen the pen in person once & gods what a monster.  Truly an excellent find bud. Congrats.

Dennis

Dennis,

Here's a photo of the Giant next to a Sheaffer Snorkel (Autograph) pen.

Sorry for the poor photo quality.  My archaic Olympus Digital is not working properly anymore.  Time to get a new one soon.

Thanks Jack, thas awesome.

Folks get to see rare pens like this on the net, but so rarely are they shot next to anything to give it some sort of scale.

Now the $25000 question is are you going to ink & use it?

Great stuff bud. Thanks for posting.

Dennis

Dennis,

In all liklihood, I will not ink it due to the susceptibility of white pens to stain. If it wasn't absolutely new, I probably would but in its new condition, I won't.

So do we have any clue what the production numbers on rare birds like this really are? 25? 50? 100?
