I'd be grateful for advice, please.


I have several Burnham B48s/51s and have just purchased what was advertised as a Burnham pen. It's flanked by the 2 dips in the link.


I was convinced that it isn't a Burnham - it looks to streamlined for a pen made by a company that closed in 1965 - but it was cheap and I was willing to take a chance. The nib reads Burnham 14ct and Non Corrosive is imprinted on the barrel. I was really after the nib.


Any views on whether the pen is a Burnham would be appreciated, please.






Is this a Burnham.doc

Hi Nigel.


I'm very grateful for your reply. I know Alan Charlton's site well and had written to him. Another contact has said that the streamlined style is typical of a desk pen but cannot confirm that it is a Burnham. I'll await its arrival, check for any other markings and update.


Thanks for your interest and help.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
