I've been lurking around for a while and this is my first post :)


I recently acquired a NOS Parker 88 (I believe it's a 88 though it was listed as a Rialto) and while there is an "F" stamped on the plastic feeder, it writes like a Broad to me. I have just got into FP so this is the only Parker I have. I'm not sure if my observation is correct but it feels like it has a B nib on an F feeder, is it possible that the nib has been swapped or is it just typical Parker F nib?  I'd like your opinion on this. Another thing is it writes very wet, more so than I'd like, is there a way to decrease ink flow?


I included some photos of the nib and a writing sample here (J. Herbin Rouge Opera ink). Thanks for your time!
