Mabie Todd Swan 3220 with Factory Stub- Super Flex (On Ebay)

Here is a made in England Mabie Todd Swan self filler #3220. It is made of navy blue celluloid. The pen is in excellent condition. There is very little brassing on the gold trim. A little on the ball of the clip. My two favorite features of this pen are first that it has metal threads which look classy and provide stability to the barrel. And second, the section screws into the barrel making repairs, internal cleaning, etc. simple. The pen does have some light scratching throughout the body, but I’ve buffed and polished a lot of it out. The 14kt. Mabie Todd nib is a wet writing factory stub (0.7mm) that also flexes with ease up to 1.9mm. If you love stubs and you love flex, this is your pen. This gorgeous nib is a bit of an oblique, but writes well with a “normal” pen angle.
