Pelikan M620 Place de la Concorde, M620 18K Fine, inked with Noodler's Bernanke Black
Another one of my many M620 City series pens comes into use. This is one of the later Places pens representing the Paris square Place de la Concorde. It features quite subtle banding of off-white, pale blue and grey, trim is silver rather than gold.
A nice wet 18K fine nib that writes very well. The gold colour in these older two tone nibs seems more golden than my newer Pelikan nibs.
Noodler's Bernanke Black, named after the now former head of the Federal Reserve. This ink has the special property of being quick to dry. This is jokingly referenced on the label as a help to print more banknotes quicker for quantitative easing.
A nice straightforward black ink that dries quicker than the Noodler's Standard Black. This is suited to left-hander writers who can suffer from smudging of their writing.
