hello I have just picked up my second Parker this one says Duofold. i am new to fountain pens and real new to Parker. I have tried to take some photos of the nib, it was in bad shape. I have tried to work out some of the kinks but my question is this: some of the tipping is broken off one of the tines, would it be worth sending it to get fixed or just find a replacement and do a stub grind on this one?. I ask because I don't know that much about vintage nibs yet.

It will be less expensive to find a replacement nib than to have this one retipped and repaired....
