    English Wartime Duofolds

    Looking through my English Duofolds I came across three pens from Newhaven production during the second world war. All three had one thing in common, the gold plated cap bands were seriously brassed, much more so than on US and later Newhaven Duofolds. (The ball of the clips were also brassed but this is much more common.) I wondered if wartime limitations meant that the gold plating used was thinner quality than normal on Duofolds?

    Thank You

    Can I just say thank you to everyone on this forum - and the folk who manage it, and put it together. It is a joy, and a pleasure to share this positive forum with you. Today, I just realised that the Parker Duofold Pen I recently inherited (found discarded in a drawer - no-one else knew what it was, so I took it on the ground that being an FP, I would at least get some use out of it) from my recently deceased grandfather may actually tie in with his Naval service at Newhaven in the Second World War. He did not talk much about his service (in fact he only mentioned it in his last years) but after his death we found his records which showed when he had been stationed in Newhaven (and I heard a story about my grandmother travelling to Eastbourne to see him). It's only someone told me the pen was made in Newhaven up until 1945 that something clicked (the Royal Navy's names for Newhaven was HMS Aggressive & later HMS Forward II, which might explain my confusion) The patience & helpfulness in the way this forum greets fellow travellers (who may be asking the same question for the umpteenth time) is inspiring.

    Vacumatic With Newhaven Nibs?

    Hello there, i've a quick question: what about Vacumatics with Newhaven (N marked) nibs? i've seen more than one of these pens on eBay - usually second generation, with speedline fillers - and i've always thought the nib was been replaced. Now, i've read that the first pens produced in Newhaven were strange: some of them made with different plastic, others made with parts imported from Canada and so on.. it is possible that these "N" nibs are the original mounted on the pen in the moment of their creations?
