Conklin Ring Top- Good Flex – (On Ebay)

Here is a pretty green and black speckled ring top. I believe the pen is made from a hard rubber rather than celluloid. The pen is in very good condition. The imprint is good and the trim is also very good with only some minor brassing on the cap band. It has a nice 14kt. Toledo nib (the better quality nibs were made earlier in Toledo rather than later in Chicago). The flex is “good” but not “super.” It has decent range but lacks the ease of a super flex. It is a nice, soft writing nib. Pretty little pen.
