I bought this very pretty ringtop from Dan Strong, who is no novice about pens. He says it's a Moore, but I wonder.
I have a few Moores, and most of them have barrel markings: this doesn't. It also has an "M" engraved on the lever box: all my others are plain. The nib is a replacement, so no information there.
Does anyone have the solution to this mystery? It's a femme fatale of a pen, for sure.

I have never seen a lever like that on a Moore. Nice color.

Shouldn't phonics be spelled with an f?

I've never seen a Moore pen with a lever like that.

Marathon, Maybe Morrison. Those have "M" in the round part of the lever. But I think one is cursive and one is not. I can't remember and can't find any photos on line that show it well. Searching google images for a glimpse of a lever imprint......
