Make That "Almost Always"

I made an offhand comment here about a year ago ( http://leadheadpencils.blogspot.com/2013/06/the-waterman-96.html ) that I’d only seen clipless Waterman Patrician pencils in black, like Joe Nemecek's example, a picture of which was included in the article:


All, that is, except the one I found at the 2013 DC Supershow a few months later:



Unlike Joe's mine lacks any imprint, but this is beyond question a clipless Patrician (Waterman called this black and pearl celluloid "nacre").  If I had known I could be this effective at jinxing myself, I would have said I’d never seen a solid gold one!
