Mabie Todd Swan Ring Top – Good Flex (SOLD)

Mabie Todd Swan Ring Top – Good Flex (On Ebay)

This is a New York made Mabie Todd Swan mini ring top. This is the ultra portable version measuring only 3 3/8″ and about as thin as a #2 pencil. The pen is in very good condition with no dings and very little brassing. There is a slight bit of plate loss on the edges of the lever and two small spots on the section. There is an inscription on the barrel in a nice script that reads “J.R.B.” I think. The 14kt. Mabie Todd nib is a nice little XXF nib that writes quite smooth for how fine it is (0.2mm). It flexes quite easily up to 1.2mm, and if you stay within it’s range the flow keeps up well.
