I'd think so too. There is another 'Bock' on a mountain, is turned the other way. It's been years since I saw it. That is not a Bock nib. Riding on the good name of others.
That is a post war nib, in the Bock factory some 20-25 minutes away, started in '38, when Hitler stole the gold. So Bock didn't have any gold until after the War.
My gold Bock nib is semi-flex....the steel one I think is only regular flex.
Grumble Cubed, I just went through five or six nib holder cases of one type or an other***, and couldn't find them, a steel one and a gold one, and with them is another semi-flex Warrented or Ideal BB or wider un-tipped semi-flex nib that will some day go off and get some tipping. They are there...but where?
Organization is half the war....a hell of a time to find out I'm a pacifist.
***It's not that I have so many nibs....I got hit by an avalance of the things with in a few months of starting....and my wife gave me two 4"x2 1/2" briefcases....that have too few nibs in them. Obviously, I had some plan in mind, it appears I misplaced my mind longer ago than I thought.

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.
