Conklin BCHR Ring Top- Good Flex – (On Ebay)

Here is a very nice Conklin Ring Top in BCHR in near mint condition. The hard rubber is still very black with almost no fading. The chasing and imprints are very crisp.  The gold filled ring top and lever have no brassing. The pen has an inscription on the side that reads “MRS. N. M. RUSSELL.” The pen looks to have hardly been used. The 14kt. #2 Conklin Toledo nib is an ultra, buttery smooth F. It is wet but not overly so, and really it kind of feels more like a M. Great writer. The flex is good, but this feed really needs a wet ink. The R&K Solferino did very good, but some of my Diamine inks were railroading. If the feed were better, I’d grade this a Super Flex. Line variation is excellent going up to 1.9mm! It’s hard to find a vintage BCHR pen that looks this nice, and this one is a great writer with good flex.
