Back in that time there were countless small "no-name" FP-makers in Germany, and allmost all the pens looked the same...

On this site you find a 1946 photo of a Pan showroom:

120 German pen manufactures in German in the '50s. I'm sure many bought their parts or un-machined parts from major companies, and cut the threads and mounted the 'standard' trim.
Many of the pens are 'clones' of major brands. Germany then was the China of piston fillers. German workers were then 'Cheap', back when the Dollar was Almighty and the DM was 4.20-4 to 1.
Back when Benz's and BMW's was cheap small vastly underpowered foreign 'junk'.
What does the nib say exactly...I can't quite read it.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

There are images of yet another Pan (Pan 27) out there on the Web at this

Den norske fyllepennfabrikk was founded in 1950 by Arne Karlsrud. They produced fountain pens for the Norwegian market under the name Pan. In the early seventies when I first went to school, every boy and girl would eventualy get a Pan pen. The Pan Senior, the upper pen in the Picture below, belonged to my dad, and I remember he took realy good care of it.
The factory was in Vellumstad, Ski, Norway.

Nice to see confirmation that they're Norwegian. I've a Pan 45 (with mangled nib, alas) and I was a bit sceptical when the seller told me it was made in Norway. Apart from the damaged nib, I can't get standard converters to fit - they just fall off.

Funny you should say that, this pen is the only one that has a narrel imprint that says "Pan Norsk" - "Pan Norwegian".
And - the nib is marked "Garantert 1ste kval", warranted 1. quality.
I have heard that these pens were also present in the Dutch market.
