Goldfink Wunderfuller.  Found recently in the wild, thought you might find it interesting. Shown next to full sized Parker 51 for size comparison, 

then next to a Waterman 2A nib for nib comparison.  This goldfink nib is long tined and flexible.

Wunnderful :) find indeed. Is it restored? Also would like to know if there is a model number inscribed anywhere on the turning knob?

Good luck with the restoration. Not too difficult just be gentle with the twist knob.

Unfortunately I could not find any of my pictures showing a wonderfüller taken apart but it is quite similar to Astoria shown here. The section should unscrew from the barrel and so should the rear housing. Be very gentle using light heat. If you have not done this before please send it to a professional.

Finally I can chime in this thread: my first complete Golfink Punkfüller.Small size nr1, marked "C 21" on knob.

This pen allows for a comparison of filling systems used by three german pen brands: Goldfink, Astoria and Matador:

As you can see, all these systems use much the same principle, the only difference is reversing the operating parts.Interestingly, even the arrow marking is almost identical.

Here all three pens, all size 1.

As for this particular type of Goldfinks: I found that in the beginning they were named "Punktfüller" later renamed to "Wunderfüller".
