A Little Old Nib

This tiny nib appeared in a Swan eyedropper that I bought. I swapped it out for a correct nib and I have hung onto it in the hope that it will eventually become clear which pen it began life with. It’s properly tapered for a split feed eyedropper filler but at 16.7 mm long it would be just swallowed up by any pen I can think of.

    1. I do see what you mean but the CF nib is quite a bit larger and I suspect that under that hood lies a comparatively normal nib. I can’t say that with absolute certainty as I’ve never had one apart to that extent. Those I’ve handled had 18 carat nibs whereas this is 14 carat.
