Pilot Elabo First Generation

this is probably a first generation Pilot Elabo in the 1980s,
my previous Pilot Elabo can be found at FS-18SR and FS-25SR.

this early Elabo has a thinner barrel and snap-on cap, all are made of resin, the barrel has a serial number stamped.

it can use CON-20 and CON-50 converter,

the back of the feed is lacquer coated, however bubbles may appear after inked and it would easily peer off!

a tape is used to remove the lacquer coating on the feed.
after thoroughly cleaning, i found the feed has a detachable piece, the structure appears complex,
the nib is dated H285, February 1985,
