I just returned from an Easter visit with my parents. My father handed me a cardboard box and said "Here's some stuff I'd like for you to have." There was a box full o' family history with correspondences to and from my Grandfather who was killed in WWII, and his wife (my grandmother, who passed away a few years ago). Also, there is a diary, an address book, war memorabilia, postcards, and (the main reason for me posting here today!) some fountain pens.
One of them is a greenish grey plastic/celluloid with a clip that is fairly rusty and reads "Eve.......", which I believe will be Eversharp, if I clean the rust off and it's not too far gone. The nib reads 'Gilbert" in script over "Kromex" over "205". It looks to be a gold plated nib.
The pen body has 2 sections, threaded together. When you remove the back half, there is a little "plunger" plastic piece that moves up and down. I'm fairly new to fountain pens, so please bear with me on the descriptions! I am familiar with lever fillers (there were 3 of those in the box in rough shape), cartridge/converter fillers and the one piston filler that I have (from Bexley). I've never had plunger filler (is that what it is called?) before.
Can someone help ID the model of the pen (if there is one) and maybe the approximate year (should be prior to 1947). Also, sorry for the cruddy photos. Just got home from a 2 hour drive and my back is killing me.
