The first P51 Style Hero By Ta T`ung Fountan Pen Factory in 1946.

Ta T`ung combined with Wolff in 1954.

Wolff changed its name into Hero in 1966.

999 Hero is for Chiang Kai-shek`s 60th birthday.

 

The first total P51 style chinese pen I know is No. 51 Vans in late 1945. Ad is 1946.1.1

The first hooded nib part P51 style is No. 51 Diamond. Ad is 1944.10

 

Ta T`ung received warning from Parker in 1947 for publishing P51-like ad

I wonder why Hero did not use the same size diameter tubular nib as Parker? It would've been so nice to have interchangeability.

There were 130/131 and so on with 21.5 mm nibs.

616's and 100's nibs are 19.5 mm.

Universal Chinese hooded nibs are 18.5 mm.
