Questions to Conklin Endura

29 July 2016 - 04:20 AM

Hi all
Recently, I found this Conklin Endura in a thrift shop. It's 13.5cm caped.

What's the correct term for this size, is it OS or Senior? I found both on the internet. (It is not a long cap version).

Is it common that the pen is lacking any imprints? Only the nib says Conklin Endura. It's not a crescent nib. It's a huge heart hole nib which is extremely flexible, maybe a wet noodle.

And could the manufacturing date of 1926 be correct?

Thanks for your help?
