Moore Vest Pen – Wet Noodle

Moore Vest Pen – Wet Noodle (See Price Here)

Here is a Moore BCHR vest pen with a gold-filled overlay. The pen is in pretty good condition. The hard rubber has faded some to a dark grayish brown/ black. There are also small bite marks on the top of the cap and end of the barrel. The overlay is in pretty good condition. There is some light scratching from use, but no brassing. The clip and lever are in like condition: some scratching but no plate loss or brassing. The overlay also has the initials I.N.S. engraved in the side. The 14kt. Moore nib on this pen is absolutely superb. It is a soft XXF (0.2mm) that writes quite smoothly for such a fine nib. It’s flex range tops out at about 1.6mm (BB), but the responsiveness on this pen is truly superb. It has a near dip nib responsive quality that is very rare and hard to come by. Even the slightest line variations allow for crisp flex writing. Perfect for calligraphic writing such as copperplate.
