Conklin Crescent – Super Flex – (On Ebay)

Here is the classic Conklin Crescent pen. No pen collection would be complete without this iconic pen. This pen is in quite good condition. There is some browning of the hard rubber, but still pretty dark. The chasing is a bit worn on the body, but quite crisp on the cap. Imprints have some wear, though mostly readable. The gold crescent and spring clip are in very good condition. And the locking ring is present with no cracks. The pen has a Conklin #2 Toledo nib. The flex is good. It is a bit stiff for super flex, bit it has such fine hairlines that it makes good flex writing nice and crisp. So I graded it super flex. Free Gift: From now until Christmas, everyone one of my buyers gets a free 2ml sample of Pilot Iroshizuku ink!
