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

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

Here is a made in England Mabie Todd Swan eyedropper model 1500 with over/under feed. The BCHR is in pretty good condition. It does have some moderate fading to a dark black-brown. More so on the body than the cap. Chassing and imprints on the body are still pretty good. The imprints on the cap are quite faded and only partially readable. Slip cap has to cracks and hold tight. The 14kt. Swan nib is a wet and smooth writing F. It has some good flex ability going from 0.4mm to 1.6mm. It’s too stiff to be classified a super flex in my opinion, but it does have decent responsiveness for how wet a pen it is. You definitely don’t have to worry about railroading.
