gold filled trim
Vergoldet als Walzgold
Made by placing a piece of brass or other cheaper base metal and placing it between 2 pieces of gold. The 3 pieces were then bonded together to make one piece of metal. It was then run through rollers until it was thinned down to the desired thickness. At this point it would be like plywood or veneered wood. The item was then punched out or cut from the sheet and the bare edge covered. Not the same as rolled gold.
Vergoldet als galvanische Vergoldung
Wahl's double check mark in a gold circle used to signify a lifetime guarantee. The seal was introduced in 1928, but the double check marks were used earlier to signify the Wahl pen and the Eversharp pencil. Pens with the gold seal should also have a nib marked Gold Seal, although some Dorics and Coronets were made with the adjustable nib. The factory sometimes sent out pens with the gold seal but without the Gold Seal nibs. In these cases, the small gold seal was punched to indicate the pen did not have the lifetime guarantee.
A pattern used most often by Wahl, first on hard rubber pens for a chasing design, then on metal pens and finally on the wide band of the Oversize Personal Point which, because of this band, is known as the "Deco Band." The design, like many of Wahl's innovations, is currently being used by Omas."
