    Pen is inked right now, though I do have some letters to write. As soon as it is dry, I'll get some pix of the nib to satisfy the dimple police here.

    I'm a member but requested that they don't send me the Pennant. PCA is well worth supporting but I never read the magazine so asked them to send it to schools or such instead of to me. It's been several years since I got a copy now.

    I have no idea what a "dimple" would look like on this nib, but I have disassembled the pen for the benefit of the hive. Here ya go.

    Many Thanks for your efforts and images.

    Perhaps I am wrong, your nib to me looks like a standard 51 nib

    That's what I would have expected, but will all this talk of "dimples" and such, I figured I would post some pics. Thanks!

    Again Many Thanks, BowlingBallBaby

    In the past I have own a P51 with a nib that had a perfect sphere on the end of it.

    You could write at any angle ( even upside down ) the result was the same - extra broad.

    I have long since sold it.


    Still have a P45 with the same type of nib, perfect sphere, this one writes broad.


    As for a few dimples on a P51 nib, they are hardly that interesting...........

    The images are a little hard to tell, as the 'dimples' are very small bumps one on either side right where the curve of the nib transitions to the straight line to the back of the nib. Yours does not appear to have these little bumps. Nibs made before late 1953 and after 1957-58 do not have them, only the period in between those dates. This was a design addition to correct the placement of the hood to allow proper flow.

    The boy from the farm, a friend of mine, loves to be a bit secretive. This information I gleaned from a short article in a recent issue of The Pennant (magazine of the Pen Collectors of America) which he may very well have had a hand in.
