Edit: Found another black wood pen, in worse condition than my brown one. But wondering if they are from the same family?

One is F nib and the other is FF.

Full stop.

 

That is NOT in bad shape, the cap is Sterling Silver most likely.  Needs polishing. Same at the butt end.  The section too may be sterling silver so look for proof marks.

from the images, it looks to be a classic ebony GvFC. It's a little tarnished, but the nib and pen are in very good condition. Needs a little polishing to bring back the shine.

The engraving looks a little faded, thus ill try polishing as you suggested! Would you recommend just a normal silver polishing cloth, or the use of some solution?

Thanks! It does look like a classic ebony, but what would you say are the defining characteristics if you don't mind sharing?

I just use a silver polishing cloth and sometimes a little spit.  Just like when Mom used to clean our faces.

all my GvFC have wonderfully smooth nibs.  The pens feels very solid in the grip. And for some reason, the metal section doesn't feel slippery like my Visconti's.
