I recently received a Caran d'Ache Ecridor in guilloché. It's a beautiful pen, but unfortunately I had to send it in for maintenance due to a feed issue.

I was always under the impression that these pens were palladium coated. However, the owner of the shop I brought it to seemed to suggest it was silver plated, as was written in his catalog. One of the reviews on FPN mentions it's silver plated and palladium coated, and a second look at the Caran d'Ache website lists various models in different plating.

Does anyone know what metal is on the Ecridor?

Mine is silver plated with a thin coat of rhodium.
