C'mon Jack...where's your yellow 1911 LE Hanshin Tigers pen? It's the yellow version of the white one that Laura has. :)

Nice collection, bud!

I thought about you tonight Jack.

I found an odd ball 3rd tier Packard. It's a HUGE OS model. The odd thing is the exteriorof the pen is covered in a black celluloid wash, BUT the inside of the cap & barrel are Yellow! Someone had jammed an incorrect cap band on it and scratched it a tiny bit. The scratch reveals the underlying material is a bright yellow. I'm doing a big pic shoot tomorrow for this weeks ebay listings & I'll try to remember & get a shot of it for you.

I tried to get a Yellow Hanshin but they were all sold out.  I don't have a contact in Japan like Laura does.  She's gotten some pretty nice Japanese LE Sailors in the past few years.

Have you talked with Stan K (not going to attempt his last name..lol). He's THE man when it comes to Japanese pens. I'll try to round up his email if you need it.

Yes, I have.  He's helped with some but many of the S.E. Sailor pens are store only sales items in Japan only and unless you are physically there to purchase them, they usually sell out in a single morning or by the next day at latest.
