Hello jhsd1124013561! Sorry for confusion. It is the same 144 fountain pen on both photos; the photo of the nib was taken a couple of months before the second photo and before it got damaged !? The converter might not belong to the pen, it's just that I found them together (but the FP had a cartridge in it !?!) and assumed they belonged together. 1st gen then, thanks for the confirmation.

Hi there,

 

Looking at your first photo, it looks like a 1st gen nib with correct black colored section.

 

However, the second photo shows a burgundy color section and a feed not belong to 1st gen, I got confused there...

I tried to photograph my 146 burgundy beside my LPP Planets and something very peculiar happened. The LPP is very slightly darker and to the eye looks a little more towards a brown hue but when photographed the LPP appears more red! I think it may be due to the high shine of the finish? Who knows.

 

It's why I haven't put them up here as they would look misleading.

I have only today the whole of this posting plus jhsd’s post on the 12/14 series and had that warm feeling.

My two favourites for balance and smoothness are the 12 and 144.

What wonderful informative articles.

My 2nd generation 144R has an 18K nib. Clip says W-GERMANY and no serial number. Section is burgundy and has brass fitting.


Excellent pen and fits in the pocket of my scrubs perfectly.

The pic in my signature is my 1st generation 144R with the black section and plastic fitting. That nib is 14k.

None of us knows how long he shall live or when his time will come. But soon all that will be left of our brief lives is the pride our children feel when they speak our names.

I have always been an admirer of burgundy.  Actually most colors are nice except for brown...too earthy and proletarian for my taste.
