    De La Rue Pen 1332 (Stock#2931)


    This De La Rue Pen, model 1332, measures 12.5 cm capped. There are no cracks or bite marks but there are some tool marks on the end of the barrel. I can't imagine why someone was gripping it there! The cap appears to be black hard rubber and the barrel is celluloid. I don't know whether the pen was originally made this way or whether it is a later mating of parts. The gold plating is good and the barrel imprint is crisp and clear. The original 14 carat De La Rue 22 nib is a firm medium. A new sac has been fitted and the pen fills and writes well (see writing sample).

    An Onoto by any other name.
