    Bayard Safety Circa 1920

    I received my 1920s Bayard Safety a couple of days ago and after inking it last night, I realized it will need a new seal as it's leaking from the end. Still, it's a gorgeous pen and in pretty much pristine condition otherwise. It came with the original box and information sheet, too. I used old newspaper, from Sept. 1920, discovered under carpeting the other day at the Vanderbilt mansion here in Hyde Park. I was photographing furnishings in the dining room and the curators called me into the "reception room" to have a look at the papers, which were found as the staff were rolling back the carpet to clean the flooring. Thanks for looking! **Please excuse the debris, evident on the pen's black surface. The newspapers are disintegrating rapidly into dust and I'll be throwing them out after I photograph a few noteworthy pieces. http://i1231.photobucket.com/albums/ee513/betweenthelens/IMG_95902_zpsd0f647a7.jpg The pen with nib exposed. http://i1231.photobucket.com/albums/ee513/betweenthelens/IMG_9592_zps7cf4d2ba.jpg The box and pen with nib withdrawn. http://i1231.photobucket.com/albums/ee513/betweenthelens/IMG_9593_zps77ac7069.jpg Information sheet accompanying pen. http://i1231.photobucket.com/albums/ee513/betweenthelens/IMG_9620_zps8f47e532.jpg "Bayard Safety" http://i1231.photobucket.com/albums/ee513/betweenthelens/IMG_9623_zpsfb5105e0.jpg Beautiful pattern http://i1231.photobucket.com/albums/ee513/betweenthelens/IMG_9634_zps9f476ebf.jpg 18ct nib with the crossed nibs design and the E and F on either side The E and F denote the earliest of Bayards after Parisian bookseller Etienne Forbin, founder of the Bayard line. http://i1231.photobucket.com/albums/ee513/betweenthelens/IMG_9636_zpsc90651ed.jpg Feed http://i1231.photobucket.com/albums/ee513/betweenthelens/IMG_9642_zps1c2d406d.jpg The emerging nib reminds me of the Stipula Samurai's retractable nib. http://i1231.photobucket.com/albums/ee513/betweenthelens/IMG_9655_zpse60eec29.jpg The beautiful cap
  2. Hello, I am new to this pen scene & I have in my posession an interesting pen. I'd be much obliged if one of you fine people could help me to identify it. I believe it to be a 1920's model 25, 35, or 45 safety pen with snake clip. I will include photos as well as a bit of an article from Pen World with a picture of what I believe is the same model pen as mine. Unfortunately the picture is small so its not the biggest help to me when it comes to identification. Unfortunately I don't know much of anything about pens, I'm just getting into it as a hobby after inheriting a few. I have been trying to identify & catalog them for about eight months now and this one always stumps me. That's why I've decided to ask for help finally. Thank you Kindly, -MM Details about my pen: It is engraved with 2 M on the end, has a snake clip, is a safety pen, nib says 14 carat as well as 2 on it, retracted with cap screwed on its 4 1/2 inches, when nib is extended & cap is on it, its just over 7 1/2 inches, nib extended with no cap it is 5 & 3/4 inches, nib retracted without cap its 4 inches, retracted with cap screwed on its 4 1/2 inches, I believe it to be from the 1920's
