Looking to sell some of my acetate to buy some new materials. I may post a few more for sale in the coming weeks. Except where noted, all of this is vintage acetate from the 1930s-1940s. Shipping is $7 for priority to the lower 48. If requesting shipping outside the U.S., then I'll charge whatever I get charged. Reply to the message and PM me if you're interested. Happy to entertain offers as well.

I'd also be willing to trade for some teal cebloplast (as seen about midway through this page: https://newtonpens.com/m800-modifications/) or some turquoise crush Conway Stewart (https://scriptoriumpens.com/pen-models-2/zephyr/zephyr-in-conway-stewart-turquoise-crush-small/).

Interested in #7 (All), #13, #15 and #16 (Both).

PM coming, as soon as I do some calculations.

Are you sure about the wall thickness of #7 ?

I’m sorry. The wall thickness on 7 is a typo. I think it’s about 13.8mm OD but let me remeasure. Really sorry about that.

Just confirmed that the blue is about 14mm. Sorry again about the typo.

So is it really ..... 14mm O.D., 8mm I.D. ..... as you originally stated ? . That would mean that there is no typo ?

The wall thickness would therefore be 3 mm, which seems a bit large for this kind of blank.

Yeah, it's about 14mm. (I corrected the original post. I previously had typed 18.8mm.) The inner diameter was correct--about 8mm, maybe a hair larger. The wall is around 3 mm. This is one of the thicker versions of this that I've seen. I use it for caps when the blue complements a more decorative (but thinner, as this vintage stuff tends to be) blank for the body. It's big enough for a mistral cap. Not sure if it's quite big enough for a jr series, though.

I have decided to back out of buying #7 due to unsuitable dimension.

But, I am now interested in #9 - 2 pieces, please - possibly even all 3 pieces - See my PM, please.
Are these definitely more pinkish ... moreso than reddish ?
