hello im new to the forums and have decided to join to figure out the maker of a vintage pen I recently bought.

It is in good shape for the most part, but I have no idea who made the pen. I am hoping somebody on here has an idea of where it came from and who made it.

It is made of what appears to be a brown marbled ebonite and had a simple gold pocket clip and lever for filling ink.

 

It has a 14K nib, and on the nib it says "PATD". I love the look of this pen, It has a beautiful brown color but i have no idea who the maker is.

 

I need to replace the nib and I need to know who the maker is. Already got some rubber sacs on the way :)

 

I am open to all sugestions or ideas people got.

Looks like a Wearever or one of their sub-brands; these were made by David Khan's company some time in early to mid-1930s. The stainless steel/chrome nib frame was a clever way to use less gold in nib production and yet, still offer and advertise pens with 14k nibs.

 

Hope this helps

thanks, it does look very similar to the wearever pens. It is a start in the right direction.
