Conklin Ring Top (On Ebay)

This is a Toledo made Conklin ring top in a black and yellow swirl.. The ring top is missing and the yellow has mostly changed to a more tannish color. Otherwise, the pen is in excellent condition. Imprint is great. Gold filled trim shows little to no brassing. The nib is most likely original even though it does not say Conklin on it as Conklin also used these “Warranted 14kt.” nibs on some of their pens. The nib has a classic Conklin style, if you know what I mean. It writes as a smooth wet XF with just a bit of character to it.

NIB:  Warranted 14kt, XF (0.3mm) SLIGHT FLEX (See “Grading Flex Nibs” for How I Grade)
