The nib in question (Durium) is a gold plated nib. It's basically lower grade steel plated in very thin gold. Most of these nibs today (decades from when they were released) are corroded from the inside.

I have numerous encounter with these type of nib and any attempt to write with them ends up in disappointment, or literally broken off tines because on some of them, the corrosion inside is not visible from the outside.

If you would like to enhance the value of the pen so it writes better, I'd suggest to find a Warranted 14K nib that is about the same size.

Basically anything that says Gold Plated after the 14K, is not a real 14K nib. I always strife for using and restoring only 14K nibs.

That is easier said than done -- the shape is quite different from the Bock and Jowo nibs I've encountered

I'm sorry, I'm not trying to trivialize things, I said the above statement because I have accumulated quite a few of these 14K nibs and had gone through the pleasure (mostly pain) of replacing nibs of a lot of pens.

So yes, what I said may not apply to those who are more... normal :D
