For your consideration, we are offering for sale this 1996 OMAS Extra Paragon Fountain Pen in the Blue Royale Celluloid fitted with an 18K Medium Nib. This fountain pen is in Excellent working condition displaying marvelous blue coloring.
This writing instrument is an Omas Extra Paragon Fountain Pen. The pen has a 12-sided/faceted design. The cap and barrel are in perfect condition with no cracks, nicks, scratches, or repairs. The cap is always securing tightly to the barrel. The trim is in excellent condition. The gold-plated clip displays very minor wear in the center on the high point of the clip from most likely the pen being slid in and out of the Omas leather pen holder. This fountain pen measures 5 5/8" capped and 6 3/4" posted. The Section is stamped with the year 1996 and the barrel is stamped with, "OMAS EXTRA ITALY".
This is where the Omas gets even better. The 18K medium nib writes so smoothly ranging from a fine (.55mm) to a medium (.78mm) line variation. The nib is designated a medium and stamped, "M" on the shoulder of the left tine area. The writing sample provided was done with the actual pen in the images that are listed for sale. The writing sample was used by dipping the NIB in Parker Blue Ink.
This Omas fountain pen uses a piston filling system and I have tested with water and works as it was designed to.
This Omas comes in the original Omas box, outer storage factory box, and Omas booklet/documentation.
These Italian Omas fountain pens are no longer being made in this vintage (1996) celluloid and only increasing in collector desirability. The condition of this Omas Fountain Pen appears to have only been used a handful of times and I would consider it to be in solid Excellent+ condition - only the minor clip wear brings the grading down otherwise it would be Near Mint to Mint. This Omas would be one of the highlighted fountain pens in one's writing arsenal collection.
