Vintage Sheaffer Nib Chart Ad

Vintage Sheaffer nib chart ad

While out antiquing this weekend, I found this ad for Sheaffer’s 14K gold nibs that included a range of all the nib widths that were available in 1950 when this ad was published. Quite a variety was available and I’m curious what exactly a “Flexible coarse” and a “Coarse” nib were. Any ideas?
