on the images above for detail on the specific example. Over the
last several years many of the limited editions of these writing
instruments have appreciated greatly in price. Key manfucturers
like Pelikan, Montblanc, Graf-von-Faber-Castill, Omas, Parker and others
will offer limited editions. These limited editions can become
good investments over time. However other high quality pens can
also appreciate greatly if the manufacturer discontinues an item which
has a following or in the case of the real world manufacturers get taken
over and distinctive lines are discontinued. As with the
manufacturring process things change and quality changes. Most
collectors are interested in artistry, craftsmanship and design.
Over time these things change and certain older pens can become highly
desirable and highly collectible resulting in huge prices at auction.
There are examples of those here.
