  4. TL;DR: I made a few impulse buys in Delft, NL. I would appreciate any help identifying this one vintage fountain-pen. Details and my own feeble attempts to identify it follow, after photos. Figure 1. Full pen, with blind cap and cap removed. Figure 2. Nib zoom-in. Figure 3. Push-button zoom-in. Figure 4. Cap and especially clip zoom-in. Details: I wanted for many months to explore the antique shops in the town nearby, Delft, the Netherlands. I took a chance on Saturday. I bought a handful of pens, all in the range 5-25€. The prices seem to me very good; for example, I acquired a Lamy 99 with 14k nib for <10€, which I believe is about 1/5th to 1/10th of the market value. One of the pens (the expensive one at 25€) in particular is proving to be stubbornly misterious. If the cost ratio at point 2 holds, this should cost between 150€ and 250€. I do not care about the cost, but ut may help with its identification. The body has "Brancas" engraved. I searched for this but there seems to be no such fountain pen company or brand. I suspect this is not the original clip. The clip goes too deeply inside, having a circumference (diameter) much smaller than that of the pen body or the screw-in finial on the cap. But, if it is, maybe it is an Omas pen. I believe the pen has a broken button filler. I believe the nib is not original to the pen. In any case, the nib is two-tone, and has engraved "REX" and the number "4" inside a star. I believe it is a steel, partially gold-plated nib. I suspect it is a vintage 1930s fountain pen. I also think 1920s-1940s could be the likeliest range. I checked the two versions of Andreas Lambrou's books I have at home, "Füllfederhalter" (in German) and "Stylos d'Hier et d'Aujourd'hui" (in French). I also searched eBay as thoroughly as I could. I looked in particular for Montblanc, Soennecken, Omas, also Bohler, Matador, Rex. Lots of look-alikes, but nothing similar enough to stop my search. Many thanks for helping out!
