Have just seen a first generation charcoal Safari being sold on the bay for an inordinate sum but am very interested in the W Germany imprint, which Ive never seen before. Does anyone have anything similar to this imprint on their Savanna, Terracotta and/or Umbra from the time please? Photo attached.

I have a Savanna and a Terracotta with a similar imprint, they both came supposedly from someone who bought them when Lamy first started selling pens in the US. One theory is that this imprint was added for export because the early pens were sold in Germany without any hint where they came from. They were without the W. Germany on the barreltop, that later versions had.

Wow - I’d love to see photos if you wouldn’t mind please? I thought my Savanna/terracotta collection was pretty comprehensive but this has thrown that theory out...! Presumably there are no other differences that you’ve found, aside from the side imprint?
