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

Mabie Todd Swan w/ Over/Under Feed – Super Flex (On Ebay)

Here is the Mabie Todd & Bard, made in New York Swan pen with over/ under feed. Since it retains the the “Bard” name it would predate 1907. The pen has faded some to a very dark black/ brown color. The chasing has worn, but is still partly visible. Imprints are still present but also worn. The slip cap is good and tight. The 14kt. Swan XF nib writes beautifully. It is soft and smooth and a true pleasure to use. It does have some decent flex that goes up to 1.5mm. It’s just a bit too stiff to be graded higher in my view, but you can still do some good work with it. If you like writing with a #2 pencil, then you will love writing with this 100 plus year pen.
