Hi,

 
I regularly use a few vintage Pelikans dated between 1934 and 1959, and keep them in perfect writing condition.
 
I am curious about Pelikan music nibs. I've heard a few stories of those who once have used them. 
From the appearance (size, engraving style) one might guess they could have been manufactured in smaller quantities during the 100n production era (1937-1954).
 
Does someone in the Forum perhaps have a more educated info on this topic? Are there any manufacturing records? Can those Pelikan music nibs still be occasionally found somewhere? 
 
I understand this is a subject of limited interest. Therefore, please, pardon my asking this.
 
Thanks.

There is a picture of a Pelikan music nib but not much else.

I think this is a very appropriate quesion here and I'm interested myself. Apparently they existed but I've never seen one, unfortunately.

I got these pictures from a japanese site: a Pelikan 400NN with music nib. Maybe someone can translate the information.

Wow, I didn't even know Pelikan had ever made a stock music nib. Cool.

 

A  three tined music nib along with an architect are two types noticeably absent from my collection. I don't currently write any musical notation or the Arabic/Hebrew those two nibs are made for. Part me just wants to have them to say I have them, but I'm trying to be more practical these days.  :blush:

Thanks, everybody who put effort and interest in addresding some obscure corners of this topic. AFAIK, the music nibs might have also been mentioned in “The Pelikan Book”. Any additional information would be very welcome.
Thanks in advance.
