Hello FPN family. I am a younger collector and calligraphy enthusiast and I happen to stumble upon a book of pen nibs from my home town and thought it would be amazing if I could complete the collection of these old nibs. Now it's not like they are super well know like Esterbrook or speed ball. However I was wondering if any persons here would be able to help in and way possible, even be able to tell me if my search will be fruitless or if sifting threw hordes of nibs at estate sales is the only way to go?

 

I'm attaching a photo of the booklet and the 4 nibs I have so far. If any other info is needed, just let me know. I am really excited to see if I can complete this set.

I have no idea what nibs these are - I don't have that much experience with dip pen nibs.

 

But: after some Googling it seems that this company is the same company as the 'Lockwood-Hazel Co.': http://www.lockwoodcoinc.com/home.html

 

Of course I have no idea whether they can give you more information, but it may be a start.

Thanks GJM , that company is actually just down the road from me and I had the same idea. I just wanted to see if the vast knowledge of the inter-webs could also help, just rather send out a net than a single line.

I am very interested to when that poster is from.

I'm writing a western 1881/2 and copper and then silver plated is more than I'd expect in Esterbrook nibs.

There were bronze coated nibs from '94-1902.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

RIP...200's once great nib, now a double ball.:crybaby::wallbash:
