Mabie Todd Swan- Good Flex (On Ebay)

This a black celluloid Mabie Todd Swan self-filler. The pen is in fair condition. There is a little bit of warping of the celluloid at the end of the barrel probably due to heat exposure. And just a little bulging around the lever box.  The pen has some knicks and scratches throughout, though many of them I buffed and polished out. The lever has some scratching and pitting. The clip has brassing on the ball and top. Imprints are good and clear. The nib is a glassy, smooth fine with some good flex. It isn’t quite as responsive as I would like, but you can still do some good flex writing with it.
