This is a very glossy black '84 in very nice condition. The only damage I can find is the plating wear to the pocket clip. Almost all the plating has worn off the clip, but it does polish up nicely as you can see. The cap has a gold plated conical top button that holds on the gold plated washer-style pocket clip. This has a diamond cartouche at the top with the "CS" monogram inside and another diamond at the end of the clip. The single cap band is quite wide and also gold plated. The barrel imprint is still deep and crisp with no appreciable wear. The short and stubby gold filled filling lever has a diamond with the "CS" monogram on the small circular end tab. Whilst most of the pen is made from celluloid, the section is in black hard rubber. The shiny and undamaged nib is a Conway Stewart No. 4 in 14 carat gold. It is in a fine point.
I have fully serviced this pen. The nib is very smooth when writing and produces a good wet fine to medium width line. As well as being large, the nib is also quite soft and springy, and will even give a tiny bit of understated line width variation with no extra effort on the part of the writer.
