  1. Hello Folks, I haven't received this pen yet. It has "Original HB Bohler" inscription on the cap side but no HB jewel nor is it a flat top. From what i can see, the nib: WARRANTED Lions head insignia (Rupp) 14k 585 OSMIUM a circle with "30"-something- in it with a triangle on both sides and one below said circle. If anyone is a computer wiz and knows how to clarify and magnify photos... I'm told its a Super flex nib, pen of celluloid from the 1950's and needs to be re-corked but the piston works fine, also there are no cracks. Its body appears similar to an Osmia or Faber Castell c.1950. Also, most Bohlers i've had or seen have a Degussa nib. Could it be referring to the tipping material? Is anyone familiar with nibs stamped "OSMIUM" or can anyone id the pen model? Who would you trust to re-cork the pen? Thoughts on filling it with RODI water for a week then boiling some 100% silicone in water and let that sit to condition the cork-work? Many thanks-in-advance for your time and consideration.
  2. I thought this book might be of interest to those who are into the history of things related to fountain pens. https://www.fullersbookshop.com.au/event/ossie-nic-haygarth/ On the Ossie Tasmania and the global fountain pen industry! For a time in the early 1900s The Waratah and Adamsfield districts held the world monopoly on osmiridium. An alloy more valuable than gold (and used to tip gold nibs), Tasmanian osmiridium became a signatory to startling world events as well as making household fortunes.
