Mabie Todd Swan Gold-Filled Ring Top (SOLD)

 

Mabie Todd Swan Gold-Filled Ring Top – (On Ebay)

This gold filled ring top Swan was originally made in New York and has an 1904 patent date. I really like Mabie Todd ring tops as they just feel like high quality. It’s hard to describe without using them. Anyway, this Swan has four decent dings on the end of the barrel, and a few tiny scuffs on the lever. I don’t see any other brassing. There is some light scratching throughout the pen. The 14kt. #2 Swan nib is a firm and smooth XF. It has about a 4 out of 10 wetness. If you are looking for a vintage portable pen that will write on cheap paper, this might be for you.
