Site Glitches and The Swan L230/63
August 9, 2013 4 Comments
I’ve been having some glitches with the site. Nothing dramatic and mostly intermittent, I believe, but unless I have examples to hit her over the head with, the developer refuses to believe there’s anything wrong. I’d be grateful if those of you who have bought from me could give me some indication about how the functions of the site that I don’t see are working.
Does the site send you a notification when you create an account?
When you make a purchase, does the site send you a confirmation? I don’t mean a confirmatory email from PayPal or a personal one from me. It should be an automatically generated site email.
If you lose your password, does the button provided actually do anything?
On to other news: this came this morning. I haven’t even cleaned it up yet, but it’s too pretty not to write about it immediately. It once had a number on the base of the barrel but it has worn away. What would the model number have been? Well, it’s a Leverless so that’s “L”.
The nib is a Phillips one (Phillips were official repairers for Swan, and Swan stamped nibs “Phillips” for them, but they’re essentially the same nibs) and it’s a No 2 size, so that’s “2”. The pen has two barrel bands and a band at the top of the cap, making it “3”. The cap lip is unsupported, so “0”. Finally, the colour is russet and jade, which is “63”. So we have an L230/63.
Finally, I note that it has a “stacked coins” pattern on all the bands.
If there’s a more beautiful pen anywhere, I’d love to see it!
