Yes, they definitely come with gold, gold-plated or steel nibs.  :)

 

In fact their gold nibs seem to be additionally gold plated on the surface, to make them even more yellow.

Has anyone seen a 14k white gold nib on a P45? Like this?

Wow,you definitely got lucky! What do you think of the pen overall? Do you still use it?

I like it a lot. Unfortunately I no longer have it. (long story) I do have two 45 Flighters currently though. If I recall correctly both have 14k nibs. I am using a different 45 right now, but need to use one of them again soon.

In photos especially, 14 k gold and gold plated nibs, the color is just a bit "different".
