Pre-Owned Pens: 5516 Pelikan Souverän R200
Era: 1980-present
Price: $99.99
Technically, this Pelikan R200 is called a marble blue. However, as we gaze at the sheening swirls of blue-grey, we prefer to call it "Smoky Blue." Evoking those stunning black-and-white portraits of jazz stars, where their cigarette smoke is its own personality in the photo, we find this preowned pen's design to be just as elegant. Overall, the pen looks nearly perfect, but you can see a ring of wear where the cap snugged against the barrel by the threads. We installed a new, black Pelikan rollerball refill. Complete with its original boxes and papers. 12.4cm capped.
