Mabie Todd Swan Gold Filled – Super Flex

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

Here is a gorgeous made in New York gold-filled Mabie Todd Swan. Patent date is 1915. This pen is in excellent condition. The engraved pattern on the body is beautiful, and the flaws are minimal. There are two scratches on either side of the barrel near the lever box. Something must have pinched it once. There is small dent towards the section that is really hard to see, and a scratch on the section. Also there is some very slight brassing on the barrel end. You’ll only see any of this by looking carefully. The pens has the initials “C.V.F.” on the barrel. There is a tiny bit of light scratching on the clip. The #2 Mabie Todd Swan nib is a pretty wet writing F (0.4mm) that is a bit stubby. The flex on this pen is beautiful ranging up to BBB+ (1.8mm) and also has very nice responsiveness. Wow. This is a gorgeous hundred year old pen, and it comes equipped with a superb Swan flex nib.
