Mabie Todd Swan Over/ Under Feed Eyedropper- Super Flex (On Ebay)

Here is a made in New York Mabie Todd BCHR eyedropper. Since it is made in New York, that would date to pre-1915. It has the more rare metal over feed. The pen has faded to a dark brown. Chasing is worn some but still has a bit of texture. Imprints are all clearly readable. The two gold filled bands are in pretty good shape, but the back band has some wear along it’s back edge. The 14kt. Mabie Todd Swan nib is a lovely writing XF. Not overly wet as many old eyedroppers are and a real pleasure to use. It also flexes from 0.3mm to 1.8mm (XF – BBB). It is pretty snappy and responsive and the tines flex quite easily. A great, not easy to find Swan.
