I only have three pens that have engraving on them.
There first is a Wearever that a guy at an antiques show GAVE me (on the grounds he couldn't sell it -- although I don't know why he thought that; it needed a new sac but otherwise is serviceable and has a decent stubbiest nib on it). I tracked down the name to that of a jewelry store in Canonsburg, PA from back in the 1940s (the building is still there, and is now an antiques mall -- I keep meaning to wander down there with the pen, just to show it to the people working there.
The second is on the Red Shadow Wave Vacumatic I bought three summers ago at the PCA auction at DCSS. I have not been able to find any info on the person (kinda wish I had, so I could tell the person's heirs: "Look, this pen belonged to someone in your family and it's still getting use 80 years later!"). And it's one of my favorites. The engraving isn't obtrusive.
The third is what I think is a Welsharp (well, the nib certainly is, at any rate). It's a cute little mini pen, about 3" long, capped (and way less expensive than the Peter Pan I saw in the same antiques mall). IIRC, it's got the initials "MH" on it, but I'd have to double-check. The initials are kinda obtrusive because they're black on an off-white pen....

ETA: Initials on the Welsharp could also be "MW", though, sorry. I just don't remember at the moment....

"It's very nice, but frankly, when I signed that list for a P-51, what I had in mind was a fountain pen."
