Before Mabie Todd pens evolved into birds and took flight across the Atlantic, there were the wonderful dinosaurs of the dip pen era.
I have a few modest specimens that I'd like to show, but mainly I'd like to see other people's collections.
Here's one to start: a No.3 flexible MT nib in a matching holder. Both the nib and the ebony handle extension slide away inside the holder for storage and travel. There is some (hand-chiseled?) decoration on the gold plating.
