Mabie Todd Swan Over/Under Feed – Super Flex (SOLD)

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

Here is a made in England Mabie Todd Swan eyedropper (Model 3012) in black chased hard rubber and sporting The hard rubber has browned some to a dark blackish brown. Chasing has been worn smooth but it is still visible. The imprints are all good and crisp throughout the pen with the exception on the light imprint of the model #, which is worn but mostly readable. This pen will also come with the original box as well as ink dropper (which is too old to be functional though).This pen is quite thin, about like writing with pencil. The 14kt. Swan nib is very soft and smooth writing F. Oddly for an eyedropper it is not very wet in normal writing. It is not dry, but about medium wetness. I should say that the nib may look to have a crease it in the tip, but its actually a slight depression in nib that is just the way the nib was originally made. The flex on this nib comes pretty easily up to 1.6mm. A nice vintage eyedropper.
