Conway Stewart Red Mottled – SUPER FLEX – (On Ebay)

This is a Conway Stewart model No. 470M, also called the “Universal Pen.” It’s a red mottled hard rubber pen. It’s similar size to a Waterman 52, maybe slightly fatter. and in pretty good shape. It was made between the late 20s and 30s. The hard rubber has very slight fading. The imprints are worn are hard to read. The lever does have some brassing, and there is a scratch near the lever that is hard to see because of the mottled design. I really like the nib on this pen. It’s on the medium side of fine, but it is somewhat stubbish. It really does add some character to normal writing. Plus, it has nice super flex ability.
