Mabie Todd Swan Ring Top – Super Flex (SOLD)

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

Here is a pretty little Mabie Todd Swan in black hard rubber with some lovely and unique bands on the cap. The pen is 4 1/4” long. The hard rubber is now a dark brown. There appears to have been no original chasing. The imprints are worn down, but they are still readable in good light. There are three cap bands each with intricate pin stripe ribbing outlined by a thin zigzagging pattern. The bands really set off the pen. The gold filled bands, lever, and ring top all look superb with no brassing. The 14kt. Mabie Todd #2  nib is a smooth F (0.4mm) that writes with a medium wetness. With a little pressure it can write quite wet. The flex on this comes pretty easy and goes up to BBB (1.8mm)! The responsiveness is pretty good as well. A great little hundred year old pen with some class and big abilities.
