Hi everyone.  I'm hoping someone more experienced than me can help me out here.  I recently picked up what I believe to be a Delta pen in a local thrift store.  It's in fantastic condition but I cannot find any information about the model or year it might have been from.  Can anyone help me identify it?


Pics are below but here's a litte more info: It's an extremely slim pen and has a Waterman Mini Lady ink cartridge inside.  There is a "D" logo on the top of the cap and the bottom of the cap says "Delta."  There are no markings at all on the nib.  Any ideas?  I've tried posting in various Facebook groups and I even sent the pics and a message to Delta but have had no luck identifying this pen so far.   









Thanks everyone!

Not sure of the model but it's a little bit similar to my 1991 NDP56 (see pics below). It's their old logo and slim so I'm going to say it's from the 80's or early 90's.


I would try asking the Delta folks on their Facebook page (https://www.facebook...ltapen/?fref=nf).

I have one of these in silver, which used to belong to my Italian father-in-law: https://flic.kr/p/Rs5Xsh. I'm afraid I can't help you with the name - I've had not luck either - but my one had a Sailor cartridge in it, the kind used in the slim Chalana models. It's still a wonderful writer, though mine has quite a bit of corrosion on the trim ring at the end of the section.

(My original post here, btw: http://www.fountainp...a/?fromsearch=1 - didn't get any response at the time, so obviously not a very well-known model, in English-speaking circles at least...)
