    Default Seven Questions about Dorics

    1. Does #3, #5, #10 adjustable nib only equipped on the first generation dorics?
    2. Are there any adjustable nib that with the solid silver slider has the same size as #6 and #9?
    3. Every adjustable nib should be together with ink shut off device when they are at factory condition, right?
    4. Why the semitransparent segments on doric's barrel have different length in second generation standard dorics? (see pictures)
    5. Except adjustable nibs, which nibs are considered to be the original nibs of Doric?
    6. Does the second generation standard Doric's barrel have the same length as the Oversized one?
    7. Which generation dorics are more collectable?

    The adjustable flexible nibs were not available on first generation Dorics. I have a first year catalog scan that shows multiple flexible nib options but no adjustable. I have a later catalog scan that shows the only flexible nibs were adjustable. Thus, the adjustable nibs replaced the flex nibs on later generations.

    I'm not home now and I don't remember the dates of these catalogs.
