Hi, can anyone help me identify this lovely Wahl fountain pen. I've managed to get it up and running again. The markings on the barrel are very faint and say simply 'Wahl Eversharp - made in USA'. It has an Eversharp flexible nib that I suspect may not be original as it's obviously smaller proportionally to the section and the normally easy flex is only really semi flexy. I'm not sure about the originality of the lever with but it's a very pretty colour and sits sweetly in the hand. Any help would be really appreciated! Thanks :)

I am sorry that I can't help!  But you just seemed so alone in this thread.  Does the barrel or cap have any imprint, or just the nib?

Sorry Missuslovett, I missed your post !

 

After going through my pen books, I am unable to identify your pen correctly.

This is an Eversharp Varsity model. Catalogued alongside the Pacemaker and Air Lite in the mid to late 30s. A pretty pen, all of these Eversharps are pretty uncommon and don't crop up very often.

Thanks you all! The pen's barrel markings are very faint but only give 'Wahl Eversharp - Made in USA'. I've never heard of the Varsity. It's a very pretty pen and very easy to use, after I'd managed to re-align the wretched lever bar inside. That was a fiddle! The nib, as usual, is excellent.
