Mabie Todd Swallow – Super Flex (SOLD)

Mabie Todd Swallow – Super Flex (On Ebay)

Here is a lovely Mabie Todd “Swallow” in a green and black celluloid pattern. Parts of the green pattern have browned, especially on the body, which is not unusual for these pens. There is some light scratching from use, and a few light teeth marks on the end of the barrel. The gold filled trim really looks sharp on this pen, and is in pretty good condition. The lever does have some scratching, but there is no brassing that I can see. Imprints are present, but somewhat faded. The 14kt. Mabie Todd #2 is a wet and lovely writing F (0.5mm), which despite the wetness does really feel like a F (western F at least) to me. It has some nice soft flex with a great range going up to 1.9mm (BBB+)! A great, vintage Mabie Todd with some really nice flex.
