Mabie Todd Swan Ring Top – Wet Noodle (On Ebay)
Here is a great made in New York Mabie Todd Swan gold-filled ring top. The pen is in great condition. Especially considering it’s age. The gold filled body has minimal wear on it with the only brassing at the end edge of the barrel due to posting. There is one small ding on the cap. It isn’t very noticeable, but you can see fairly easily if you look for it. The initials “V O” are engraved on the side of barrel. The imprints on the end of the barrel are a little faded but readable. The 14kt. Swan #2 nib is wet, lovely writing F that has some nice, soft flex. This is definitely a wet noodle. Not quite a paintbrush, but very soft with some nice responsiveness. A great vintage wet noodle in a durable and portable package by a company that made some great, quality pens.
