This one is an oldie (1950-ish) but, besides looking gorgeous, still writes OK.

A summary of the other fact sheets:

CONID Bulk Filler Demonstrator
Montegrappa Miya Blue
Parker Duofold Centennial Citrine
OMAS Milord

More to come. Thanks for reading and comments. - JG

Can I ask, what are the dimensions?
I have a 6233, and was wondering on the dimensional differences, having never actually felt one of these even though I've been tempted on many occasions.

Looks like a beautiful pen though.

Regards,

Richard.

Yes, very welcome. I forgot the pen posted dimension in the fact sheet, it's 165 mm. Other dimensions: closed 127 mm, without cap: 124 mm, diameter barrel 11,2 mm and diameter cap: 12,8 mm, weight is 14 grs. with a few drops of ink in it.

Thanks for reading - Jos

Lovely pen! Interestingly, I have two 5601s and both seem to have a longer section than yours.

Hello, very welcome. The section is 19,3 mm and the nib is 20 mm. Does that fit? - JG

I'm contemplating buying a 5601 and have seen both section lengths in the photographs on the net, both in black and marbled pens. I.e., some of the black ones have this long section, the marbled--celluloid pens all have the shorter one.

I can not speak for the 5601 because I have only one, black with long section. However, I have two of the very similar 6234 model in rose marbling. One has the short section and the other long (with corresponding caps). Nibs (No 5) and bodies are the same.
