It kind of looks like a Pelikano, but it's hard to say from the photos.  Do you have a better image of the clip and nib?  That pen has gone through many variations over the years.  Here is one version:

It's a Pelikano, which is a model of Pelikan marketed towards students.  Pelikan still sells that model, but it looks a little different today.  The one above seems to be from the 70's, maybe early 80's.  For more info, you might try here:

I know folks with lots of pens that are still impressed with the Pelikano's nib.

 

I don't have one because it's a cartridge pen. I do have the school pen before that, the piston Pelikan 120...and it has a real nice nib; a Joy to Write with.

 

I have a Geha school pen from the time of the 120 that  has fantastic nib.....so don't let the term 'school' pen put you off. There are folks that collect all the colors of the Safari, a school pen.

Many rave about the P-45 also a school pen in some variants.


German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

The GEHA Schulfuller has two models if I'm not wrong, one with a 14K nib, the other with a steel nib.  The 14K nib is pretty flexy.
