2 or 2A is the nib size, it bears no relation to the flexibility of the nib. They were made from super stiff Manifold to long tined super-flexies.

Are the 2 and 2A nibs/feeds interchangeable?

 

Penman88: I recently acquired a Canadian that looks like this although with a slightly different color and an improper nib.  The pen is called a "Stalwart" and confirming the ID should be easy with that name.  It is a Canadian-only version of another pen almost identical to it.  The one difference being the double ring on the cap. Not being an expert by any means, I thought I'd just share mine looks a lot like that.  Hopefully someone smarter can confirm or educate me as well.

 

I am now on a hunt to get a replacement nib/feed for that pen, which is why I was wondering about the 2/2A nib interchangeability.

2a and 2 are from different era pens, the classic ideal 2 is earlier than the pen your showing from the 40s I would think and later ideal 2 nibs were still in use on the lady Patricia into the mid 30s or so but I dont think would be the right nib for this one.. even though it might fit and would be really cool ha

eharriet..while poking around in the catalogs I saw the Stalwart in the 1947 catalog.. couldn't see which nib was on it but likely same as on the open nib pens of the taperite era..they have a larger diameter feed than the old Ideal 2's had ..

Hmm, that’s interesting. I plan on taking that pen with me to next Pen Show opportunity I get to see. Hopefully I’ll be able to test and see if I can find something that works. I have an open nib Taperite. Maybe I can do a comparison.
