Is there any method of dating on Visconti pens in general? I can't seem to find any information on when the Wall Street line was released and it doesn't seem to be on their site anyway.

I think the original LE pens were in the 2002 to 2004 range. Then came the unnumbered, smaller regular Wall Street pens with a metal grip and C/C system. Then again came the unnumbered Wall Street pens that are the same as the original LE power fillers pens without numbers.

If I recall, it was a one color per year for the initial release. Blue and 2004 stick in my memory, but not the years of the red, green, or grey.

Hope that helps.

Ahh, gotcha. I have a red metal section C/C wall street, but I've been wondering about the date of release/manufacture. I guess it's likely around 2005?

Is it a 14K monotone nib? If so, the date sounds about right. I bought a green one like yours in 2007 and it was not a new release model.

Woops, sorry for the late response. It's a 23k Pd "Dreamtouch" nib, which mostly just feels like an unbelievably soft nib.

I think the PD nibs are much later, maybe in the last 5 years or so. I can't recall when they switched over from gold.
