Well, it arrived in the mail.

 

Belmont FP. Good plastic. Fragile plating. Steel nib. Partially transparent section.

 

Care to add anything?  ;)

Nib is a nod to the Vacumatic and barrel resembles a Pelikan.  The way the clip is mounted reminds me of a Moore.

Crazy color combo.

 

I know Belmonts were made by many different makers, but I've never seen Wearever mentioned as one of them. yet the transparent feed, steel nib, and maybe even the lever, hmm. But the cap does look Moore-ish.

 

I have no idea. :lol:

Must admit Wearever springs to mind here too.

It is a Moore at heart. Rebadged.

 

Neat pen.
