I stumbled across a couple of vintage fountain pens in a junk shop and (perhaps foolishly) thought it might be a "fun" summer project to restore them. The first step, I guess, is to try to identify them, so I wonder if anyone might be able to help.
1) I can just about make out "Mentmore auto-flow" from the engraving, and it's a lever filler (the sac has either been removed or completely perished, as there is only dust inside). Here's the pen:
The weird thing about it is the nib: it appears to have two nibs overlaid on top of each other. The one that makes contact with the paper is actually (I think) ground to an architect/Hebrew nib, but it's overlaid on top of what looks like a 1.1mm stub. Here it is from the side:
and here it is from the underneath, so you can see the feed:
2) The second pen (visually similar) is a "National Security Auto Tank", button filler. Again, the sac inside has perished to dust, and it appears that the metal lever has snapped, since it fell out in two parts. Here's a picture:
Any help with identifying the pens, and suggestions of how I might proceed to get them up and running again will be most welcome!
