    Sold As A Slimfold But Has No 10 Nib?

    Hello everyone! I'm hoping someone can clarify for me. Last night, I made a Best Offer on two pens on eBay being sold together. One was a Parker 25 which didn't massively interest me (til I read the reviews which made me think I might like this pen even if it looks a bit like a 1980s' Eastern European car)... What I was after was a black Slimfold. Recently I got a blue Slimfold and it might be a boring looking pen, but the nib is way and above my favourite so I decided to get a Slimfold in each of the colours. Just before I made the Offer I looked more closely at the predictably blurry pictures and realised the one being sold as a 'Slimfold' is probably some other kind of Duofold, as the nib doesn't say "5" but "10". Didn't put me off as I love that Parker nib so much. Now I've won the auction, the Bay won't let me pull up the photos to double check so I will have to wait til it comes and can photo it for yous then, but... a quick research tells me it is probably a Junior. Is that right? My blue Slimfold has the engraved ring, so is presumably an earlier one. And I have been having no luck so far getting the other three colours with the same engraved ring. This one has a plain ring that is lower on the cap so I'm assuming it is later 1960s? Can anyone tell me if a No 10 is definitely a Junior, and if so, what the nib is like? (It looks like a standard, F or M nib very hard to tell from the blurry photos, but it's not an italic, sadly, which I would really love!) I paid £14 for both pens - they look seriously unloved but from what I can see, the nibs look OK. I've lost auctions on a number of Slimfolds lately and the prices seem to be creeping up, often to above £14 so the way I see it, I have got the Parker 25 for free! Not sure what a Junior would go for. I like small pens, because I have pathetically tiny hands. But am guessing the Junior will not be a massive step up in size..?
