14332: Goldfink set in box: black piston filler, 12.2 cm long, gold plated trim, matching injector pencil uses 1.1 mm lead; Goldfink was a prominent Berlin stationery firm, which contracted with multiple German makers for pen and pencil manufacture. This pen was surely made by Faber-Castell, as it uses that company's patented double piston ink reserve mechanism, though both pen and pencil sport Goldfink's trademark hexagonally faceted tops. Condition is near mint but for patches of pitting on the stainless steel nib.
