Hello!  This is my first post so I figured it might as well be a cry for help.  I picked this up at the flea market and have been fixing it up.  I can't figure out what it is, though.  Any help identifying this pen would be greatly appreciated!

 

The clip is missing and the nib is unbranded.  The only marking is an A on the spoon lever...  All I can figure is the era, late 20's early 30's...  The nib it came with was missing the tipping material so I've swapped in a flexible Wahl nib for the time being (fun).  Thanks for the help!

 

Daniel

Looks like an Arnold missing the clip.

Yeah, I wondered whether it might be an Arnold but I've never seen that "A" emblem before.  Do you recognize that from other Arnold pens?  Thanks for the reply by the way!

Yes, on some of the Petersburg, Va pens.  There were a whole bunch of fountain pens being made in Petersburg under a brazillion different names and all of the companies seemed to be related in some way either as parts suppliers or principals. They were generally fairly well made, lots of great colors, mostly gold plated or warranted nibs and near identical pens sometimes found under different names.
