Wearever flattop – 1930s

The pen featured in my last post, but cleaned up and with new sac and J-bar installed.

Wearever flattop

I couldn’t find a replacement nib so I left the original in.

It’s a very wet writer. I did bend the nib down closer to the feed, and reset nib and feed with hot water but the base metal (I suspect copper) is too malleable and is already bending away from the feed despite my best attempts to write lightly. The spoon tip digs into the paper on some upstrokes too, which is annoying.
