About two dozen or so pens, and starting to work through which appear to be the most interesting.  Here are two right off the bat:

 

Early model Dunn, longer variety:

Mabie Todd Swan Black and Gold:

Another Mabie Todd, a set in the box.  Unfortunately with a Waterman Ideal nib.  I don't suppose anyone could cheer me up by saying they've seen others similarly equipped?

I have a similar looking Mabie Todd which has a Mabie Todd nib.

 

Regards Per.

And the very last of the bundle.  What is a "Capitol Cabinet" referring to anyways?

Capitol was an Aikin Lambert brand. You can see the pen takes its direct styling from a Waterman 52

Farmdogfan (Per), can you tell me or show me the imprint that you have on yours in case I should go looking for a replacement?  The Ideal nib is very nice but I would like to keep an eye out for an opportunity to make it more "correct"
