Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 7

Today's virtual "show & tell" is courtesy of Jerred, who recently acquired another Italian-made fountain pen, the Delta 'Activa':

In Jerred's words: "This pen is the Delta Activa, from Delta's 'Hitechdesign" line. I've not been able to find out if there are any other models in this line, but the I've been able to narrow down the date to the early-to-mid 1990s."

He continues: "This particular model is one of the top finishes for this model, with a sterling silver cap, sterling silver grip, green resin barrel and 18kt gold nib. The pen is well-balanced when unposted, and the nib is really nice."

Our thanks to Jerred for sharing another interesting find with us! I hadn't heard of this particular Delta model before, so I was intrigued when he emailed me about it. I've always found our pen club meetings to be very educational as well as fun, so I'm glad we have a chance to learn about some lesser-known fountain pens via this online show & tell :)
