You appear to have found avery good vendor. I am sure that you will be happy in the end!
Best of luck
Yes, the vendor seems to be a very cooperative person; an excellent characteristic indeed. Thanks for your help Cob.
So glad this will resolve well for you.
Seeking positive resolution is total win here. The pen is restored to intended purpose, and is in the hands of one appreciates it as a fine old writing instrument.
And, glad this forum exists for you to share and discern the best action.
Please share a writing sample once it's exchanged nib is installed?
Positive resolutions are almost always the most productive; it takes two to tango so I'm glad the vendor was willing to dance. I'm glad the forum exists too, the outside (and rare) perspective of more knowledgeable people is one I appreciate very much and I will most certainly provide a sample when it's all resolved. I have to say the very wide strokes from the images I uploaded were most likely the result of the cracks in the nib, which allowed it to flex more, so it won't have as much of a wow factor in that sense but we shall see. In the meantime thanks again.
