Hunt Steel Nib from 1950s?

SH4701  Hunt Steel Nib from 1950s? I believe this would have once been part of a progressive die and why it was in with a batch of Sheaffer nibs is a mystery. Perhaps Sheaffer made Hunt fountain pen nibs for them at one time? Perhaps Sheaffer acquired it for comparison and/or examination purposes. Sheaffer often had competitor’s pens in house for examination and inspection. Excellent condition. (1 avail)
