Aikin Lambert “Capital” BCHR Eyedropper – Super Flex (SOLD)

Aikin Lambert “Capital” BCHR Eyedropper – Super Flex (On Ebay)

Here is an Aikin Lambert eyedropper in BCHR that is very similar to a Waterman 12. The pen is in great condition. There is some fading of the barrel to a dark grayish black, but the cap is still quite black. The chasing is all very nice and crisp as are the imprints. There is very little wear to the pen, nor are there really any marks of abuse. The originally 14kt. ALCO (Aikin Lambert Company) nib is a smooth and wet writing F (0.4mm). It is wet but not gushing like some eyedroppers. The nib has an easy flex to it that goes up to 1.7mm (BB). This is a very nice Aikin Lambert eyedropper in fantastic condition especially considering it is or very near a 100 years old.
