Type Capless fountain pen - nib retracts like a ballpoint

Product Name Limited Edition Vanishing Point

Manufacturer and Year  Pilot (Namiki) Japan -- 2003.

Length  5-9/16"

Filling System  Takes Pilot piston converters and cartridges. 

Color Mandarin Yellow with rhodium-plated trim. (This is definitely the limited edition yellow, we were able to confirm that at the last SF pen show.)

Nib  MEDIUM 18k nib, very smooth. 

Condition  Excellent condition for this very first limited edition Vanishing Point. Some microscratching and slight handwear, but the pen is overall in great condition.  This is a beautiful, colorful pen. The imprints are crystal clear. Nib has date code A103, which is correct for this 2003 limited edition model. Although the current VP limited editions tend to come in elaborate packaging, we understand that in the first year, Pilot did not use special boxes for these. Only 1500 of these were made and this color is difficult to find.

Payment Policy: Paying via Credit Card or PayPal are the only methods allowed for addresses outside the United States. Customers from the United States also have the option of sending a check, money order or cashier's check. Payment method is selected during checkout.

Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country. Most of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.

Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.

UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.
