Very interesting fountain pen. It's so vintage that I'm scratching my head about it. And it's in beautiful shape. How does the cap fit on it? Does it slip over the lower portion of the barrel? Does it only cover the nib? And if it goes onto the barrel, does it just jam on there? How the cap get on and stays on is not obvious to me.

That is definitely one red fountain pen.

So was it the chemical makeup of the plastics that made them crumble over the decades, and so make red fountain pens scarce, or was it the fact that they were red and people were a little wilder with them?
