Mabie Todd Swan – Wet Noodle

Mabie Todd Swan- Wet Noodle (On Ebay)

Here is a Mabie Todd Swan Self Filling pen in black hard rubber with gold-filled trim. The black hard rubber on the pen has faded some to a very,very dark brown. The chasing has almost entirely worn off. The imprints are worn but readable. It appears that at least the large gold filled band on the body is an after market addition as it actually covers up part of the original imprint. This larger band has some scratches and a few small spots with plate loss. The band on the cap sports the initials “J.S.” and has no brassing. The pen does not have the original nib, but what it has is lovely. This is a Warranted 14kt. nib with some fabulous flex ability. The tipping on this nib is worn, but it is still present. While not quite paintbrush soft, this nib has some fantastic responsiveness and a great flex range. It just does some beautiful flex work and is a real joy to use.
