Hopefully I'm not repeating a question, and hopefully I'm posting correctly!
I purchased a petrol green Lamy safari from an eBay seller I've used before with no problems. I did notice that the black nib appeared much lighter than the nib on my Lamy matte charcoal (purchased from the same seller a few years ago). I've attached a photo, it's not the best but that is as close as I could get. It shows the colour difference quite clearly and it's not the lighting that makes it appear so.
Both are good writers I think, but the appearance of the nibs is throwing me off. I contacted the seller and they informed me that Lamy has changed the colouring of the nibs recently, and that all black nibs are a bit paler than previous batches.
I tried to look into whether others had noticed this as well but couldn't find much. Is this something that should concern me? Has anyone else noticed this? Does it possibly indicate a fake? Should I just not worry??
Thanks for persevering with my questions! Hope I've made sense.
