Size: Capped - 127mm, posted - 158mm.
A beautiful and very glossy Conway 388. It is in excellent condition - no noticeable surface scratches and very unusually, not apparent wear to the gold filled trim. 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 cypher 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 still very crisp, deep and complete. The short gold filled filling lever has the "CS" logo, again inside a diamond, on the circular end tab. The nib is a lovely Conway Stewart No. 5N in 14 carat gold. It has a fine width point.
I have fully serviced this pen. The nib is very smooth and produces a very nice wet and fine width line.
