Conklin BCHR Flat Top – Good Flex – (On Ebay)

Here is a Conklin in BCHR in fantastic condition. The BCHR is still jet black with a shine. The chasing is still crisp. Imprints look very good as well. It has the personalization “FARGAS” on the side of the cap. The only brassing I see is on the very bottom edge of the clip, and I only saw that with magnification. The 14kt. Conklin #2 Toledo nib is a nice, wet F that really feels and looks finer that it is. It has some good flex flex and decent responsiveness but does lack the ease of flex of a “super flex” nib. Still a nice pen in near mint condition.
