Mabie Todd Swan Gold-Filled Ring Top – Super Flex

Mabie Todd Swan Gold-Filled Ring Top – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

Here is a gorgeous made in New York Mabie Todd Swan gold-filled ring top. The chasing on this pen is in great condition as is the gold-filled body in general. There is no brassing throughout the pen and only minor wear from light use. No personalizations on the barrel. And I see no dings, which is pretty rare on these gold-filled bodies. The 14kt. Mabie Todd Swan #2 nib is a lovely, smooth writing, XF on the wet side. It’s kind of unusual to have a nib write this wet and still stay within a 0.3mm line, but this nib manages it. If you like wet nibs but also fine nibs, here is the perfect marriage for you. The pen also boasts a very nice flex ranging up BBB (1.7mm). Responsiveness is very good. It’s overall a good, solid “super flex.” This is a great, portable, durable vintage flex pen in superb condition.
