It does say 7 on the bottom of the pen the writing is crisp and clear. The writing on the body is not very readable. I'm no Vintage pen expert, so I do not know how old this pen would be, but it seems to be 1920's or 1930's.
The 14k nib is a extra-fine , it is not scratchy, and quite smooth in my opinion. The nib also flexes with ease, and it was actually made for flex writing. The pinnacle of nib making, it was made to be very smooth, yet very flexible. It was also made to work well with lefties.
But again you will have to send it to be restored, or at least have a professional fix the nib. That said I can offer no guarantees to the extent of the work needed on any of this pen.
