SW654 Swan Self-Filler No. 3150 (Soft Extra-Fine)

Date: c1940s

Size: Capped - 5 1/8 inches; posted - 6 1/8 inches.

A lovely glossy chocolate brown celluloid Swan Self-Filler pen.  This pen is in very good condition with no noticeable surface scratches, chips or cracks; there is just a little plating wear to the upper surface of the pocket clip terminal, and some foxing and plating wear to the stem of the filling lever.  The cap has a domed top.  The pocket clip is gold filled with a ball at the bottom and the Swan logo imprinted at the shoulder.  There is a single narrow gold filled band at the cap lip. The main barrel imprint is in excellent condition - deep and crisp, and still has a little of the original white infill.  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 repalcement Blackbird No. 1 - although also made by Mabie, Todd this nib would not have been fitted to this pen from new.  It has an extra-fine width point.

I have fully serviced this pen.  The nib writes very nicely with a wet and consistent extra-fine width line.  It is a soft nib and will give some very attractive if understated line width variation from an extra-fine to a generous medium width with a little effort.
