Conklin Crescent – Super Flex – (On Ebay)

Here is the classic Conklin Crescent pen.  This one is in a ring top/ vest pen size. It is in very good condition. The BCHR has very little if any fading. It’s still jet black.  The imprints are also very crisp. The latest listed patent date is 1903. It does have the initials “G.M.B.” inscribed on the band (see pic). The only real blemish the pen has is that a ring scratch has developed around end of the barrel from the repeated posting of the cap. The 14kt. #2 Conklin Toledo nib is a fantastic flex nib. It writes normal as a smooth XF/F (0.35mm), but flexes all the way to BBB (2.1mm). It has great ease of flex and good responsiveness making it easy to control. A great all around pen in fantastic condition.
