quote ......................... "The nib is embossed "UNIQUE -14C". That's an interesting comment - reading Steve Hull's contribution on this brand ('The English Fountain Pen Industry 1875 - 1975' - page 57), he says - regarding the range in 1937 -
" .......... all featured Warranted 14ct nibs as had previous models, suggesting that Unique, in common with some other medium-size manufacturers, did not make their own nibs."
That's not to say, of course, that when sub-contracting your nib manufacture, you couldn't ask that the imprint carried your own name, although the author's comments, above, appear to refute that - so you appear to have something unusual perhaps?
b.f. were made as well as self-fillers - and in view of what seems to have been a large array of different models, it's surprising how few seem to be around now - perhaps they're now all residing in collections.
