Ad: This is Japan Platinum Jet Black fountain pen. This is very rare found in auction site. The closed cap size is 5 1/2 inch and “Fine” nib. The pump is either one. Made in Japan

3/28/16: There’s a defect on the threads of the section. (See photos 1 & 2 below.) Plastic has been gouged from this area and is highly visible, detracting from the appearance of the pen. When I mentioned this to the seller, he replied that this was a manufacturing defect and does not affect the writing. He even sent me a photo of other pens with the same defect. (See photo 3 below with gouge circled in red by the seller.) This defect does not appear in his eBay ad photos. (See photos Platinum Black 3 and Platinum Black 4 above.) I have initiated a return request.
