Here are two more Diamond Point pen additions to my personal collection. Diamond Point in Black Hard Rubber with Gold Overlay
Fitted with a Super Flex "wet noodle" 14K #3 Warranted nib ... amazing flexy writer
Lever filler, about 5" long (capped)
Made in USA pre-1920
The ink used in the writing samples above is Noodler's Turquoise. Paper is Block Rhodia No.13
The combination of the nib, paper, ink, proper ink flow and proper pressure applied creates that gorgeous color shading ... that is "the ultimate writing experience" in my humble opinion!Diamond Point Flat Top
Cream with Red Veining and gold trim ... amazing color with some darkening on the cap
5 5/16" long (capped)
Slim profile when compared to a Diamond Point Oversize Flat Top ... about the same diameter as a Waterman 52
Fitted with a 14K Warranted medium flex nib
Made in USA in 1920s
The second picture, close-up of the clip on the cream with red veining cap, depicts the rombus with the "NEW" imprint. That imprint only appeared on Diamond Point pens made after year 1920. You can compare it to the clip in the gold overlay pen. There is no rombus with the "NEW" imprint, meaning that pen was made prior to year 1920.
Phenomenal vintage pens with some very interesting color patterns not available in most pens with flexible nibs of that era.
