Anyone buy these "new manufacture" 1020 pens?

Saw this on eBay.  Says they are new manufacture.  I'd order from Best, but there is a good chance they will be dried up or 50-75% dried up.  Does anyone have any experience with these and how are they holding up?  The price is steep ($22) for a tube of four pens.

although in some thread or another I posted new manufacturers and their links... they were close to 20 but multi packs.

I am not convinced these are indeed newly manufactured. Who makes them? Why isn't the brand mentioned? Why is it on eBay and not on a regular storefront? Very suspicious.

Looks like a Spanish Casio dealer, I would hazard these really are new.

Those have TANDY(Radio Shack) packaging, I'm fairly certain those are vintage NOS just like the pens from Best.

Radio Shack had their own 4-pen color plotter based on the same ALPS mechanism,  the CGP-115, I have one given to me by my brother.

Yes, I consider the other machines commie, coco, and their peripherals/accessories parts for Atari stuff... it's also useful to get items that support such accessories and peripherals since many used the same supplies.

 

Of course it's NOS (new old stock) just look at the picture :)          but you can buy 10 to 20 packs for the price of 1 new pack when they pop up in quantity from time to time... some might not be up to par but it's almost always a big win to do so... still a major bargain.
