Glossar Letter G
A celluloid pattern
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.
Gravur oder Imprint
