Moore Gold Filled Ring Top – Good Flex (On Ebay)

Here is a vintage Moore gold filled ring top. I haven’t restored many Moore gold filled ring tops, and I am impressed with the quality construction of this one. The lever mechanism feels especially stout and smooth and the pen overall feels more solid than it’s Wahl and Waterman counterparts. The back of the barrel and top of the cap does have brassing. There is some light scratching throughout the pen but no dings or dents. It has the initials “V.M.F.” imprinted on the cap. The Moore 14kt nib is a smooth writing XF/ XXF (0.25mm) that is quite smooth. Unfortunately, the nib does have a small crack extending from the back of the breather hole to just short of the “E” in “THE.” The nib has good flex and is on the border between good and super flex. It has good range from XF to BBB (1.8mm). It doesn’t quite have the ease of flex and steady flow of super flex, but it has a responsiveness that is as good or better than most super flex nibs.
