    A lovely looking pen, thanks for pics. What is the nib like - hugely flexible or a nail?

    Wow. What a great looking example. I have one of those and it is a great writer. Mine has a very flexible nib. How does yours write?

    That is a beautiful pen, farmdogfan. I've been really tempted to get a coral MB push-button and your pictures are making me fear for my wallet.

    Thank you Fawkes, i can add that this is a german made pen, the danish made ones that have a slightly tapered cap.

    Fantastic pen!!!

    I'm not sure this a german pen. It appears in the Holten/Lund book as produced in Denmark

    Hi Hermetic, and thanks.
    The danish and the german pen allmost look the same but the danish made pen has a "taper"cap, itīs on page 52 in the Holten/Lund book.

    When you say taper cap, do you mean the entire cap tapers from the cap band or the taper starts at the crown of the pen?

    Iīm not sure where it starts to taper (i have not got a danish pen myself) but maybe someone who has got one can chime in.
    The danish captop is one number smaller than the german one, the danish 30 captop has the same size as the german 25 captop.
