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.
