I'm looking at two 9550 nibs in boxes. One has 9550 engraved along the length of the nib while the other is across the width of the nib. What is the difference?

For love of it. And yet not waste time either.

Depends on the size of the numbers of the one across the width.  If the niumber is large, it's late model '50s or '60s rather than one of the earlier issues.  The one along the length is also later model. I don't know anything more specific than that.

Across the width is smaller, so it's an earlier one, but seems no different in design. Thanks, Paul.
