Please Help: Question On Visconti Wall Street Nib

Hi All,

 

I recently won a bid off ebay (Seller: Sirtoti from Spain) for a Visconti Wall Street fp in grey celluloid. However, upon closer inspection I noticed that the nib was not a Visconti nib. Instead, the nib says VICEROY. Since this is my first Visconti pen I have no prior experience with this manufacturer. Can someone please explain whether I should be concerned that this is not an authentic nib from Visconti, or perhaps it's a limited or special edition nib? Also, this version of the Wall Street fountain pen is not a limited edition. This ebay seller has great reviews which is why I felt comfortable with the bidding process. Just want to make sure that I wasn't sold a pen without the original attachments (also this pen is sold as is without the original box. I ended paying for $260 in total; as the pen is still in the seller's possession the early I'm able to find an answer the better.)

 

Thanks in advance for any feedback anyone can offer.

According to the seller, this 14k medium nib, branded Viceroy was supposedly made by Visconti for the jewelry company. I have not been able to find any information on the internet relating to this claim. I'm knocking myself for not paying attention to the details ... hoping someone can shed some light on this. Thanks

Visconti does make a lot of pens for others. This might be one of them. It looks like a legit Bock nib and it looks like it's also stamped with the right gold marks. When you receive it, you might want to make sure it rights and it's truly gold. If it is, there should be nothing to worry about.

the title says Viceroy by Visconti, and there is a Viceroy sticker on the pen shown by Parcival.

It would indeed look as if Visconti has made this pen for Viceroy, and had the nib stamped Viceroy, so to me it looks legit.

There is another one here, again from Spain, but more expensive.

The Viceroy sticker is on this one too.

the description says:

Made by Visconti for Viceroy. Same as the Visconti Opera Custom Model for Viceroy. Limited and numbered edition. The Top Luxury Viceroy range.

It is made from red resin, and its trim is palladium-plated.

Customized for viceroy. NIB M
