    Perhaps appropriately for a show about time travel, the pen is reminiscent of a 1960s Pelikan MK10, though missing the barrel trim and cap detail. Something from one of the many mid-century German pen makers?
    Geha 708, note the clip, finial ring and cap ring

    Could be. Did it have a green/black variant as seen on TV?

    The movie First Man recreates the Apollo 11 pre-launch breakfast, 51 years ago today.

    Artist Paul Calle (played in the movie by his son, Chris) uses two different posted fountain pens to sketch the astronauts during the meal and later while suiting up. (Interesting article about Paul and Chris Calle here.)

    bj 2.jpgThere was a writing scene from Whatever Happened to Baby Jane. Not sure if Joan Crawford used a fountain pen but the movie is such a classic that I had to add this photo

    Several fountain pen sightings in season 3 of Dark (sorry again, Carlos).

    In 1987, a school pen.

    In 1954, a distinctive pen with a pull cap and a metal section.

    Honestly, at this point I'd lost track of the year and the place. But look! A Sheaffer!

    Someone is writing with what looks like a fountain pen at about 42 seconds into the trailer for Gordon Lightfoot: If You Could Read My Mind.

    Looks like a lever filler. An Esterbrook maybe?
