I'm feeling like a fish out of water with these two, almost scared to do anything to them.
The Artcraft is striking and the nib looks to be in good condition. It has a healthy rattle to it and will need a new jbar and sac. I'm especially leery of this one due to it's celluloid construction and the warping shown in the photos.
The Duocraft is stickered and appears to be NOS, except some possible nib damage. The gold section was very loose, but appears to have been shellaced into place at one time. Do you agree that the nib is damaged, or is this downturn to be expected in a music nib of the era?
Any advice or tips would be appreciated. I don't have a great deal invested in these, so hopefully I didn't get burned on the purchase.
