Good morning everybody!
I'm new to this community and first i want to write a few things about me. My name is Nora and i study architecture in cologne (germany). Maybe that's the reason why writing instruments have always fascinated me! A few weeks ago i inherited some pens, pencils and other wonderful old things by a good friend of my grandpa (he was a technical drawer)! There are also some 1950s Rotring Rapidograph in their original packaging!
But now i will come to my original question. Among the items was also a "old looking" pen by A.W. Faber in a beautiful grey with gold details (i wonder if they are real gold?). The nib says Osmia 14K 585 and the model of the pen seems to be 992 EF. Can anyone tell me what the EF behind the number means? And how old could this pen be? I think it was made in the 1950s, but correct me if i'm wrong! I Couldn't find anything about this model....so i would be very happy if you could tell me something about it! I think it is a beautiful pen and i'm looking forward to use it!
I'm super excited and looking forward to your answers!
Have a nice sunny day
Nora (i hope my english is okay)
