Covid-19 Pen Collecting; State of the Collection

It seems as if the pandemic has caused some stress buying for me. Since I've sworn off on collecting too many watches I've done a transference to pens. Below is the state of the collection just a few month since I purchased my first fountain pen. Some planned purchase went awry but overall the hobby has progressed far faster than I expected.

Thanks! It's been a great distraction researching and collecting. A nice way to spend Covid limited time.

Likely the ones least fitting are the two Schaeffer Harley Davidson pens. I've had the ball point for over 20 years; I added the matching fountain pen in April. It was fortuitous to get the fountain pen to match; eBay can be an amazing resource.

I'm definitely in pace mode now although easier said than done. Two still to be added; one incoming is a gift from Mary for my birthday and the other was one I've been wanting. Still much cheaper collecting than watches.

Actually Waterman not Schaeffer. Don't know what I was writing.
