I try to date the Rosewood Flat Top (see photos added to this post).

It is 132 millimeters long (5.2 inches) when capped and has a nib size 2.

The top of the cap has written on it: "Made in U.S.A."and on the clip there is only "Wahl Pen".

In the 1929 catalog I might have found it with the number 7207C, but I am not sure if there have been more similar ones produced over the years.

 

Many thanks,

Roland

This style of rosewood first shows up in ads from 1927 replacing the mottled style.

Thx for it. 

I couldn't find any similar pen in the 1928 catalog (which doesn't mean much) and I don't have any catalog from 1927.
