CS1058 Conway Stewart No. 388. (Double-Broad)

Date: c1930s

Size: Capped - 128mm, posted - 159mm.

A very pretty and very glossy Conway 388.  It is in very good condition - no noticeable surface scratches and all the gold filled trim looks bright and shiny.  The  reason that I have only rated the pen as "Very Good" is that it does not have its original nib.  It has a period replacement nib which I would think was fitted a long time ago.  It is a lovely little Phillips Oxford nib in a very unusual double-broad point with a huge blob of iridium at the tip.  The cap has a large black hard rubber top button - this still has an excellent deep and rich black colour with no appreciable fading.   The pocket clip has the Conway cipher within a diamond shaped cartouche at the top and the diamond motif is repeated at the bottom.  There are three cap bands, two narrow bands flanking a wider central band.  On the barrel the imprint is nice and celear.  The short gold filled filling lever has the "CS" logo, again inside a diamond, on the circular end tab.  

I have fully serviced this pen.  The nib is very smooth and produces a very nice wet and very broad line.
