Size: Capped - 4 11/16 inches; posted - 5 3/8 inches.
A very pretty Burnham No. 54 made from glossy jet black casein. The pen is in excellent condition - just a tiny bit of plating wear to the pocket clip shoulder is the only damage I can see on it. The cap has a gold plated top button that holds on the tapered Burnham pocket clip. There are also two narrow gold plated cap bands. The barrel imprint is crisp and clear with only very minimal wear. Opposite is the gold-plated filling lever. The nib is the original Burnham 14-carat gold nib. It is in a fine point.
I have fully serviced this pen. The nib is very smooth in action and writes very well with a fine width line. It is quite a soft nib - verging on soft to semi-flex. It will give some very attractive line width variation as you write.
A very attractive little pen in very nice condition.
