Greetings, I recently was blessed to come across some old pens. This one really caught my eye. It looks to have mother of pearl on it. The nib reads Carey New York 14k No 5. Very little information about Carey to be found. Anyone have any to share? Is this a Carey pen? I have seen others that are similar but of different names. It is engraved. Engraving says A.M. Drum (pretty sure that is a name because the other pens/pencils have the same initial on them). S.C. South Carolina? Armstrong Council No. 92- D of L. Thank you
Hey all, while out thrift shopping today I found two Waterman Ideal eyedropper pens for a fairly great price and had a question or two I hope you guys can answer. One pen has a clip and somewhat clear imprints on the barrel and the #12 on the bottom. The other has no clip and there is a chip and crack on the cap but it should still be usable and is also a #12 with a wood like finish to the barrel. What I found interesting is that one has a flexible Carey nib on it. I did some poking around but did not see much information for the nib or the company so I was hoping to get some help. So my questions are; Are they rare nibs since the company was not around long? Were these found commonly on Waterman pens or is this just a Franken-pen? I took some pictures (pardon the quality my phone isnt the best at up close shots) http://imgur.com/a/cOY0L
