A beautiful and really rather unusual green herringbone Conway 76. This is the first example of this rather elusive model that I have been able to offer for sale, and it is a real corker! It was produced in the early 1960s. Both cap and barrel are glossy and scratch free. In fact I can find no damage at all on this pen - even the gold plated pocket clip, cap bands and filling lever show no wear or other damage. The green top button is surrounded by a gold plated tasside which holds on the gold plated "CS" monogrammed pocket clip. This one has the diamond-shaped end. There is are also three gold plated cap bands, a central wider band flanked by two narrower bands. The filling lever is also gold plated and has the "CS" monogram within a diamond imprinted onto the circular end tab. The barrel imprint is good and deep and crisp and shows very well. The nib is a 14 carat gold Conway Stewart No. 4 in a medium point. The herringbone finish is one of the most sought-after finished in this or any other Conway Stewart model.
I have fully serviced this pen. The nib is very smooth and writes with a very nice wet line.
A very attractive colour and a very good writer.
