Lord Z here! I just went pen shopping...ish. I went to an antique mall, looking for pens from people who know nothing about pens, and so miss-price them. Anyway, I found a nice vintage pen for $50, and it was gold-nibbed, so I thought I would look it up.
Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. I cannot find the pen anywhere online. So here I am.
What I need: Model. Price. Barrel material. Anything else you can scrounge up on it.
MISC: I found the company: Imperial Pen and Pencil Co. Went bankrupt in 1951. Other than that, I can't find much.
Nib: 14k, fine or medium, springy, maybe minor flex.
Nib Markings: Imperial, 14k, USA
Body: Black, tapered ends, gold clip, silver band on barrel marked "Imperial" with a crown.
Action: lever fill. Large-ish ink sac.
Measurements: I have not measured the pen yet, but if you need me to, I can. It is very big, perhaps the size of a Conway Stewart Wellington and similar in shape.
Thanks a ton,
