    Double check everything on that Mont Blanc. I have two that I thought were real. The lettering was perfect, they were heavy well made pens. But, it turns out they are very well made heavy fake Mont Blanc pens. AND one was just like yours. One way you can test this one is to unscrew the pen and shine a bright light up the barrel. It will glow RED. Its the special Mont Blanc resin that makes it do that. Also if its new enough it will have a serial number etched into the upper ring. If it doesn't have a number it could be old enough that is okay. BUT, it will still be etched with the word Germany on it.

    That Bally Key thing is great!

    Fairly certain it's real. Has a serial # and, based on the inscription, was given to someone who worked on this deal: http://www.gasandoil.com/news/1998/01/cnm80226

    Ok. Well, in that case, what do you need so I can trade for it? [​IMG]

    Grabbed this hoping it was Baccarat. Was cheap enough at $1.99. Took the sticker off when I got home. No other markings besides the "France". Oh well, now I have a nice paperweight.

    These are a pair of Allen Edmonds Patriot loafer. The size is 10 D US. They are in great shape, very handsome with a pebble grain finish. Oh and they are made in the USA so put that in your pipe and smoke it [​IMG].

    Available

    Cheers!

    Good stuff. That leather is the same used to make NFL footballs and supplied by Horween

    This is sort of a pop for me... I picked this up to sell on consignment. Buttery soft leather goodness...

    My neighbor and I were chatting and somehow got onto the subject of music, which then turned to records. He told me he had a whole crate full and said I could take what I wanted. Lots of common stuff (Elton John, Supertramp, Grand Funk, Three Dog Night, Steppenwolf, etc), but I did manage to grab these. The Artwork is a local Christian-psych private press and I've been after this Status Quo album for years.

    Quick run this AM. Sorry about the shitty pics, but I was in a hurry.

    Took a chance on the Leithauser and the DB Konen SC's, but I liked the construction.
    The Tom James has working cuffs and was a custom order that looks like a 42R pre-measurements.
    The Canon was a Pawn Shop find for $50 because it was missing the battery.
    The OD Jacket is vintage Air Force and has a hood.
    The collection of shoes are clockwise from the bottom left: Bed/Stu Roan, Vintage JM Aristocraft with V Cleat, AE Madrid, JM Oxblood Heritage Made in USA Bal, AE Boulevard.

    Your pics are so shitty that the internets refuses to show them, apparently. Either that, or you forgot to upload them.
