Scratches On Vanishing Point Feed?

Sorry the photo is a bit blurry, I had a hard time getting an up close picture. Hopefully the pockets and scratches show in the picture. It almost looks as though some ink has eaten away at the feed. Has anyone else seen this in their Vanishing Points? I do use Noodler's Dark Matter regularly in this pen, but I don't think I've heard of that ink being corrosive. Could it be the trap door just scratching he feed? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you can get a better picture - maybe rest the nib on a table and balance your phone (assuming it's a phone) on a shelf or stack of books or something), it would be easier to tell, but those look mechanical to me - like something gouged the plastic, and not like corrosion.

Doesn't the feed push back the trapdoor mechanism? That could explain the scratches. Nothing to worry about IMHO

      @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.
