The machined engravings on hard rubber and metal pens. Before colorful plastic pens emerged, chasing was one way to add some decorative flair to pens. Many different patterns of chasing were used.
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."
