I recently picked up this pen and was hoping someone might have more info to share about it. After hours of googling, I haven't been able find a trace of another like it. Based on the trademark cap crown, blindcap imprint (7m), and nib, it appears to be a 1920s(?) Astoria in the #7 size. It's a lengthy 5 7/8" capped. Like a Montblanc #7, it's made of black hard rubber. But unlike the Montblanc, the hard rubber is chased. It's also a button filler, not a safety. The only marking on the barrel is 'Verlag Scherl" (an early twentieth-century German publishing company).
I've had plans to list this for sale, but am out of my depth with regard to fair asking price. In addition to its history, any input on its scarcity or ballpark of its value would be greatly appreciated!
