Vacumatic With Newhaven Nibs?

Recommended Posts

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?

The only such pens I have seen have known history of the nib having been replaced by Parker or other nib specialists. By the way this is an excellent nib swap, the nib is a marked improvement over the original.

 

The Vacumatic reference work by David Shepherd makes no mention of English nibs being fitted to Vacs prior to sale.

This is quite interesting. We should be open to new information.
