The Platinum president nib units are complete with the gripping section so are very easy to fit. This one is an old stock nib - it has never been used, but I have tested it so there may be a trace of ink still in the feed. It is made from 18 carat gold and is in a rather unusual "C" or double-broad point. The nib is a two-tone example with rhodium platin to the chevron decoration. The gripping section is black with gold trim and the threaded part that engages with the barrel is also gold plated.
