Burnham B48 nib assembly.

Posted by Kevin Randle on

This version of the Burnham B48 from around 1952 was fitted with a screw in, interchangeable nib assembly.  The nib itself is a Gold Plated steel nib with almost all of the plating lost.  The tip is fashioned by folding the ends of the tines to make a writing point.  This particular nib is a Burnham B45 Broad nib, very smooth and, I would think, very durable.  This would have been an important selling point at a time when fountain pens were used extensively in a business environment.
