This is a good sized Croxley pencil in a very nice green and black marbled celluloid with gold filled trim. As usual, I have given this pen a thorough going over and the only damage that I was able to see was a little plating wear to the cap band. The pencil has a good original gloss, with no noticeable scratching or surface scuffing at all. It is in the more unusual "streamlined" style, and reminds me a little of the Sheaffer Balance designs from the 1930s. The tapered cap is fitted with a gold filled pocket clip that has an attractive fluted design down the stem. It has "12ct GF" imprinted at the side of the shoulder. The barrel has two imprints - one saying "MADE IN GT BRITAIN", the other "THE CROXLEY PENCIL/ A DICKINSON PRODUCT". Both are crisp and clear. This is a propel - repel pencil and works by twisting the cap. The cap will also pull off and below is the original eraser holder, though the eraser has long gone. Below this is a space for storing spare 1.18mm leads. There are none there at present, but I have installed a fresh lead into the mechanism so it is all ready to go.
I have fully serviced this pencil. It works very well.
