Mabie Todd Swan Chatelaine Over/Under Feed (Oblique Stub) – Super Flex (SOLD)

Mabie Todd Swan Over/ Under Feed (Oblique Stub) – Super Flex (On Ebay)

Here is a lovely little made in New York Mabie Todd Swan in Chatelaine style. The BCHR is in good condition. There is some fading to a grayish black, but the chasing and imprints are still very crisp. The gold filled trim is in very nice condition. Some very small dings on the top of the cap but no brassing. The cap fits a bit snug, but that is the way they were supposed to be as it is a slip cap with a chain dangling from it. This Swan comes with a really unique nib. It is a very wet writing oblique stub. It might even be crisp enough to call an italic. It takes a little bit of getting used to, but it is butter smooth when you hit the sweet spot. A phenomenal writing experience. Added to that is a very nice and soft flex going from F (0.5mm) up to BBB (1.8mm). Plus, the oblique italic nib combined with the flex makes for some special abilities when use the two together. It’s a great and very unique vintage flex pen.
