Remarks                                 :

The number “A50” comes from the 1889 Hawksley catalogue, where it is called the “Hawksley’s Patent “Clip” Cartridge Turnover”

It is sometimes difficult to decide whether it is a A50, a A44 or a AA44. If possible it is mentioned at this place.


This Detachable one is not mentioned in the 1889 catalogue. Maybe it is of a later date. It is quite rare. It is in this collection because of the courtesy of John Romans
