Conklin Crescent Vest Pen – Super Flex – (On Ebay)

Here is the classic Conklin Crescent pen in a vest pen size. It is a P33 model. This pen has some significant fading of the hard rubber making it a medium brown throughout. I kind of like the vintage look but some don’t. The imprints are still visible and readable, but they do have some wear. This pen’s latest pat. date is 1903. There is an “Unscrew” imprint on the cap, but it’s very worn. The barrel ring does have a small chip out of the top of it, but it is a whole and complete ring. The gold filled trim all looks good. The pen does not appear to have ever had a clip or ring top. The 14kt. Conklin Toledo nib is an ultra buttery smooth F (0.35mm) nib that has great flex range up to 2.2mm. The flex on this pen is easy and quite responsiveness. This is a higher end flex nib that is approaching wet noodle status. A nice vintage pen.
