We love pens with a story, and this one comes with a doozy. First, it was found with a cache of pens under the floor boards of house. Plus, it has a really unique 4-line engraving in German! As a gold-filled overlay, we suspect it was a 50th wedding anniversary. "Zum Jubiläum / Hilde Hamm / Mullerish / Rudolf Luisiey or Luisiez" Mullerish is a last name, and we think Hilde Hamm was a first and middle name, as was Rudolf Luisiey. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. Unfortunately, the overlay has a lot of brassing on the edges and on the middle of the back of the cap. Its nib is a real gem.
