I found this Symphony with an adjustable nib, the pen seems to be for the french market. I received conflicting opinion about the originality of the nib on FPN, so let me check also here what you think.

Wouldn't the nib be 18 carat if it was for the French market?

In the USA, the Symphony arrived long after the adjustable nib went bye-bye. It can get messy with overseas pens, but the couple French Symphony pens i've handled don't have adjustable nibs. On the other hand, you adjustable nib has markings I don't recall seeing on USA_made adjustable nibs. If a replacement, it does no harm. I'm not confident enough to insist it can't be original, though the point about "18k" above is well taken.
