This is a fine example of the earliest Onoto Magna model 1861, released in 1937. The 1861 in black chased hard rubber has a single narrow cap band and a No. 6 14k gold nib, this a broad point, a smooth wet writer with some flex.
The imprint is crisp and still has the white in-fill:  “ONOTO – MAGNA    De La Rue Ltd London”. There is no model imprint: none of the early model 1861 pens had a model imprint.
Closed the pen is 13.3cm and when the cap is posted, 16.8cm.
This early Magna model is less common I believe than the later models and in this fine condition and with the broad nib it is a very nice addition to any magna collection.  It is shown in the WES Journal article on Magnas by Stephen Hull and Lawrence Oldfield (Spring 2010) and in Stephen Hull’s book, “Onoto The Pen” on page 218. 
CONDITION:  the pen is in fine condition; the chasing and imprints are crisp, showing no signs of wear. The imprint still has the white in-fill. There is no brassing of the gold filled clip and cap band. The plunger filler has been serviced and the big broad nib is a smooth writer with lots of tipping.
