This pen is coming up at the local auctions, and is listed in the catalogue as a "Dash Pen 14 Carat Nib", but I can't find anything about it. Might anyone be able to tell me what it is?

Hard to figure out what it might be from that photograph.

 

It'd be good to see the clip, and the nib. And if they could be seen in some detail that would make identification more likely

 

If that's the only photograph you have of it we'll probably need you to tell us more about it.

 

I'll say that it doesn't look vintage to me, but I may have a different idea of the dividing line between vintage and modern from some folks.

 

Is there anything else you can tell us about it at all?

I didn't have time to go and inspect it this weekend, so unfortunately I don't have any other details on it. Normally they'd list the manufacturer, which I assumed is what they meant by Dash, but I can't find anything on it. The auction is this afternoon (currently 1am where I am). They usually let me pop into the gallery to have a look before something comes up, so I might have to see give it a closer inspection. Picked up a lovely Parker Slimfold there a fortnight ago,

Went to the auction today and got it for $15. Turns out it isn't a "Dash Pen" but a Dasi. Shorthand is the model. From what I can find, it is an Australian pen made sometime in the 60s.
