I have never seen that "teardrop" style yet. Is that some variant that they made of their nibs, or was there a period when they made nibs in that style?

 

Don't quote me, but I think these were wartime nibs in the early '40s.

 

Frosted nibs...

Interestingly, the teardrop on these looks it opposite to how it is on the 3550 (which also has a teardrop but is "backwards" compared to this one).

I call them "frosted banner" nibs.  Very nice when you find them, and often nice writers.  I tend to hang onto them if I can.

So, that is what a frosted nib looks like!  Dilly, Dilly!

Frosted nibs ... According to Brian's esterbrook.net info, a special nib made and sold with Visumaster pens.
