Mabie Todd Swan Vest Pen Gold-Filled Eyedropper – Super Flex – (On Ebay)
Here is a beautiful gold-filled Swan that happens also to be an eyedropper. The pen is in great shape. There is some brassing on the end of the barrel, but most of it blends in really well. There is also a little bit of brassing on the barrel that is covered by the cap. The brassing in both places comes from the cap being posted or screwed on. There are two very tiny dings in the “personalization” area. There is no personalization as it is still blank. There is some light scratching on the body from years of use as you would expect, but the pen still shines. Besides those very minor blemishes, this pen is in wonderful shape and is quite a beauty to behold. The 14kt. Swan nib is a wonderful writer. It’s a smooth XF that is soft, bouncy, wet and just a joy to use. The flex is also fantastic ranging from XF (0.3mm) to BBB+ (1.8mm)! Additionally, this nib has a great bounce and snappy responsiveness.
