A lovely glossy black celluloid Swan Self-Filler pen. This pen is in very good condition with no noticeable surface scratches, chips or cracks; the only damage I can see is a tiny bit of plating wear to the upper surface of the ball-shaped pocket clip terminal, and a bit of plate loss on the filling lever stem. The cap has a slightly convex top with the Swan logo imprinted and picked out in white. The clip itself is gold filled with a ball at the bottom and the Swan logo imprinted at the shoulder. The main barrel imprint is in excellent condition - deep and crisp. The filling lever is also gold filled and has the small circular end tab that is very much a Mabie Todd trademark. The nib is a replacement nib made from 14carat gold and it has a medium width point with a bit of softness to it.
I have fully serviced this pen. The nib writes very nicely. It is soft, and will give you a little understated line width variation from a fine to a good generous medium line with little effort on your part.
