Hi.

 

I'd be grateful for advice, please.

 

I have several Burnham B48s/51s and have just purchased what was advertised as a Burnham pen.  It's flanked by the 2 dips in the link.

 

I was convinced that it isn't a Burnham - it looks to streamlined for a pen made by a company that closed in 1965 - but it was cheap and I was willing to take a chance.  The nib reads Burnham 14ct and Non Corrosive is imprinted on the barrel.  I was really after the nib.

 

Any views on whether the pen is a Burnham would be appreciated, please.

 

Best.

 

Paul

This Burnham blog site  might be useful, although I can't tell how up-to-date it is.


Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is a gift.
That's why it's called the present

Hi Nigel.

 

I'm very grateful for your reply.  I know Alan Charlton's site well and had written to him.  Another contact has said that the streamlined style is typical of a desk pen but cannot confirm that it is a Burnham.  I'll await its arrival, check for any other markings and update.

 

Thanks for your interest and help.

 

Best.

 

Paul
