Hi,

Just seen this pen on an auction site, anyone know what it is?

It looks like something is written on the lever but the picture isn't clear enough for me to read it, can you? The nib looks like gold and that would be the most common material for a nib in the HR era but that's no gaurantee. It may be mottled celluliod.
Can you get close ups?

The description said 14kt gold nib. The picture quality is very poor, I can't read any of the markings.

Thanks.

Yeah, I'm not certain but it looks like on the nib I can make out "WARANTED" above the 14k.

Probably just a generic pen then. What auction site was this on, because image search isn't pulling up anything.

It's on eBay Australia, someone is selling a whole bunch of their old collection. It is priced around $60

Without anything identifying it as a brand and no mentions of it being restored, it is (in my opinion) probably not worth even half that. You can get  new-ish ebonite eye droppers and similar filling pens that look like that for $20 (US) or so if you just want a standard warranted or IPG (iridium point germany) generic nibs. In fact it could be one of those if not actually specified as a vintage pen.
