As the title states, either color is good. Looking to buy one to replace the tip of my gold Scepter. Frankly, I am not fan of its current one.
If you have one, I am planning on trading in two NOS pieces ( PF335 x 1 & P209 x 1) from my boxes, and if necessary, cover the price difference in $.
Any help will be appreciated, thanks.
What if I just gold plate a P205 tip for you?
Not sure. Let me look into it. I believe the tip is nickel plated brass which means I can gold plate it easily. If it’s chrome plated brass I’d need to strip the chrome off first and then plate.
It wouldn’t be that expensive plus I’m not giving up any of my 45th P205s for you to harvest from.
Sounds good, keep me updated. Thanks.
BTW. I don’t think the gold parts on the 45th Anniversary are actually gold.
Yerp, I know. As long as the Scepter recieves a P205 tip in gold color, I’ll be happy.
There are cheap knockoffs that have gold tips that would also fit. Wouldn’t be official Pentel gear though.
Hmm, you bring a good point. I suppose I could go that route to use one of those pencils as a donor. I’ll look into that, thanks for the idea.
The gold color may not match perfectly since it would be artificial.
What karat gold is the Scepter?
The pencil uses 23 karat.
Found a 45th Anniversary white and gold P205 for @Cummins07 on Mercari today for $12.
I love how when we ask about something one magically appears in a listing.
So what’s the take away here? Ask you get. Don’t you won’t.
Or something like that.
Such is the small world of mechanical pencil enthusiasts.
