If you count Austria, I have only two. Mid-late '50's. The ball points have the problems of the Ball Points of that era (I grew up then so know the teething problems of ball points of the time. Cork piston....NOS at the time.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.
