I picked up this tiny pen the other day.  The nib is marked "midget 14k", barrel "14k GF 1/20".  No other markings that I can see.  It's a lever filler and I have not removed the section as of yet to inspect.  Nib looks OK, but a bit out of line.  Uncapped length is 4".

 

Anyone have a clue on the manufacturer/brand/model?  I've searched, but not finding something close.

 

Question two is, "approximate value"?  I'm hoping I didn't overpay... it was something of an impulse buy.  I bought it with the intention of restoring it and selling.

 

Many thanks for any suggestions/advice!

 

Steve

This is the only lead i can suggest:

The [kinda' funky] barrel-taper looks right, as does the section and nib.

There certainly is a resemblance.  Mine appears to be an overlay over plastic/rubber... it would be pretty easy to believe it was made by the same manufacturer.  I will dig further, thanks for the lead!

Close looking to this one: ITEM #4080: DIAMOND PP FOUNTAIN PEN WITH GOLD FILLED OVERLAY.  http://pentooling.co...amondpoint.html

 

So perhaps it's a Diamond Point pen.
