This pen was given to my daughter. I would like to hear about it from the experts. I also posted this on the "First Stop" forum, but thought it wise to post it here too.

 

Edward Todd C3 nib

The Edward Todd nib is pristine and is gold/brass color and is not attracted by a magnet. What does she have? TIA

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

The 14 carat solid gold nib will be from 1868 or later (when Edward Todd left Mabie Todd to make pens under his own name). I've no idea what the C means. I have Edward Todd nibs with various letters on them, and there's not a huge difference between them.

 

The holder is from the same era. It's a retractable - you slide the ring back to withdraw the nib into the gold-filled holder. The shaft is mother of pearl.

 

Here are similar examples from a (1903) Mabie Todd catalogue:

I wondered why there was a slit in the barrel. I will have to try to retract the nib. Thanks.
