The self-filler is a New York pen from about (I would guess) 1924. It is fitted with a Pat. 1915 clip.
The leverless was a bit of a pain; English from about 1933, its internal mechanism had rusted away and the fact that it is thinner than the standard leverless pens of the period (e.g. L200/60) made the repair trickier than it might have been. And of course the nib was bent too. Anyway it works now and as I hope the writing shows, it was worth straightening the nib!
The colour difference is interesting I think, the New York pen being quite a bit darker; perhaps there was more "gold in the rolling"?
