Conklin Cresecent 25P – Super Flex (SOLD)

Conklin Cresecent 25P – Super Flex – (On Ebay)

Here is a gorgeous Conklin Crescent in superb condition. Really the only flaw in this pen is that the black hard rubber has faded slightly to browish black. Most would still call this black at first site. The chasing and imprints on the pen are perfect. Crisp as the day it was made. Latest patent date is Dec 1903. The trim is likewise perfect with no brassing and no scratching. The pen literally looks like it was put in a case and kept there without ever being used. To top it all off, this Crescent has a beautiful 14kt. Conklin #2 nib. The nib writes normally as a soft F (0.4mm) with great flow. Flex on this nib comes very easily. So easily, in fact, I would call this a borderline “wet noodle.” It ranges up to BBB+ (1.8mm), and has very good responsiveness. It’s just a phenomenal and collectible 100 plus year vintage flex pen.
