The fact that it has a "Made in Canada" vintage nib leads me to believe it was put together by someone. If it were a prototype, wouldn't it have a nib from Newhaven?

i'm thinking that nib was a later addition. maybe someone made use of the prototype's nib and clip and substituted them with truly vintage ones.

The nib as a later addition would make sense, although the linked one also has a vintage nib, so either people like stealing the nibs out of them or the mystery continues.
