I am offering my vintage Yotubisi FP for sale. This pen dates back to the 1950s. The ebonite body is coated with a lovely shade of mocha/maroon urushi. The cap band is 14k gold. The nib is 14k gold and has the kanji for "wisdom" on it.
The clip is a bit pitted, but is wholly intact. The rod that one pulls out in order to fill the pen from the top moves easily, but I have not filled this pen with ink, and I assume that the seals will have to be changed if you intend you use the pen. It is in impeccable shape. You may notice a tiny section where the clip is attached that is missing. Because the area is totally covered in urushi, that missing spot was obviously there when the pen was manufactured. What I assume happened is that the pen maker drilled the hole for the clip a bit too large. This is what one might call an artisanal imperfection which does not detract from the pen's utility or appearance in the least.
I am asking for $575, which will include shipping within the USA. For overseas customers, please add $25 for Priority shipping.
Payment is by PayPal at DavidAugustus62@gmail.com or check or money order drawn on a US bank.
