That looks like one of the many second or third tier pens and may have been made by the US Fountain Pen Company. Is the nib a warranted 14K one?

I have a Diamond Medal, sold by Sears, Roebuck and Co., which is identical to this pen, except mine has three cap bands. My pen is a 'demi'-sized pen - most likely a ladies' size. It was one of many house brands made by National Pen Products. NPP was located in Chicago, at the time, tho'.

Take Care,
J.R.

Thanks J.R. and jar for the info!
Here is other pic with the gold nib. Yes, the nib is a 14k warranted one.

Do any of you know how much is the value of this pen in the market?

Thanks again!

Maybe $20.00 or so if already restored and with a new sac.

Maybe a bit more for a dealer that would guarantee the restoration. Is the nib flexible? That can hike up the price a bit too.

FWIW, I paid $35 for mine, restored to a very good condition, new sac and smoothed nib. I collect "house brand" pens, so it fit right in. (And, it's a great writing pen, too).

Looking at the nib of your pen, these pens are twins - except for the cap bands, of course.

Take care,
J.R.
