Mabie Todd Swan Eyedropper (Wet Noodle) – Wet Noodle

Mabie Todd Swan Eyedropper (Wet Noodle) – Wet Noodle ( See Price Here)

Here is a gorgeous made in New York Mabie Todd Swan. The color on this pen is as black as the day it was originally purchased. Chasing is also crisp with little wear. The imprints have no wear and still have much of the original white paint. There is some very light scratching from capping the slip on cap. This is very light and what you would see on modern pens of light use. There is also some on the end of the barrel from posting the cap. It has a Mabie Todd accommodation clip (no original clip was on this pen) that show a little bit of wear but still looks pretty decent for it’s age. On the barrel there is the inscription “Property of N.Y. Telephone Co.” So I guess you can add a nice piece of history to the quality of this pen. The 14kt. Mabie Todd #2 nib is a lovely wet noodle. It writes normally as a soft XF (0.3mm) that is smooth and not overly wet. The flex has a great range going from XF to BBB+ (1.8mm). The flex is not quite paintbrush soft but it’s definitely a noodle, and it has some very nice responsiveness. Overall, this is a stunning, collection quality Mabie Todd Wet Noodle.
