I just received this tiny black-and-cream ringtop from a dealer in British Columbia. No marks, no branding; a Warranted nib (arguably a signature nib - it's pretty wide). It writes quite expressively and looks very cute on a lanyard.
I work at a job where I sometimes have to take physical notes or draw pictures away from my desk, so I've gotten into the habit of wearing a ringtop fp on a lanyard. It's distressing, therefore, to notice how easily my 52 1/2 v unscrews itself from its cap and drops off. I lost a very valuable pen of another make some months ago and it makes me wonder if this has happened to anyone else? Judging from the large number of caps on ebay, I suspect this happens a lot, but I also notice that pens from the 30s and 40s seem a bit less prone to the problem. Experiences, anyone? Please share your pain, or any methods you have for keeping cap and pen together.
