Does the Montegrappa Miya ever present with a solid, rather than a bi-color nib? The Miya I have appears to have a steel nib, (that is, no marks to indicate it's gold)  but I'm at loss to know how that could be possible.  Does anyone have any information about this? Many thanks.

Does it stick to a magnet? Some of the extra models appear from time to time with a silver coloured monotone nib, but they are still gold nibs

Did you buy it from a reputable seller (local store, Goulets,...) ?

My Miya has a bi-colored gold nib, but there is no visible guild on it. I bet that the gold marks are on the lower part of the nib, which rests within the collar under the silver grip.

 

I have a spare no. 8 nib from a Montegrappa Extra, and the guild stamps <750> <*1140MI> are written 2–3 mm under the letter M that informs about the medium tip of the nib, so it was virtually invisible once inserted within the section.

 

Even if the nib of the Miya is smaller, also in its lower visible part is stamped the size of the tip (F in my case, for fine), so I assume that the gold stamps are still lower on the nib, inside the section.

Keep in mind that many stainless steels are not magnetic.
