Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 253

 As promised, here is the second of three modern Italian-made fountain pens Jessica recently acquired---her handsome OMAS 'Extra 556/F' fountain pen!

 (all photos courtesy of Jessica ~ please click on images to enlarge)

Jessica says: "This is the most modern of the 3. The “F” in the model number means faceted since there is also an Extra 556 that is smooth, round cigar shaped."

There's a very informative article on the vintage OMAS 'Extra' fountain pens here:
"OMAS EXTRA - The reason of a name and its use over the years"



Our thanks to Jessica for the great photos of her wonderful new fountain pen! Next week, we'll feature the last of her three new Italian fountain pens :)
