A very pretty and glossy green marbled Conway Stewart with the candy stripe marking. It is quite unusual to find a Conway Stewart made from this pattern of celluloid rod stock. The pen's condition is very good - in fact, it is undamaged apart from some foxing to the pocket clip plating. This does, of course, look 10 times worse in the photos than it does in "person". The pen's shape and proportions remind me a lot of a smaller version of the No. 58 pen. The cap has a conical black top jewel that holds on the washer style pocket clip. The clip has the "CS" monogram within a diamond shaped cartouche at the top and another diamond at the bottom. There is also a single gold filled cap band. The barrel also has a conical shaped end. It bears an excellent deep and sharp imprint and has a small gold filled filling lever. This has a circular end tab with the "CS" monogram again within a diamond shaped cartouche. The black hard rubber section, also undamaged and glossy, holds the large and undamaged Conway Stewart No. 5 nib in 14 carat gold. This one is a medium point.
I have fully serviced this pen. The nib is very smooth and writes a lovely wet, generous medium line.
