Size: Capped - 126mm, posted - 157mm.
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, apart from the pocket clip which appears to have lost nearly all its plating, but still shows well. 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 nice and crisp and deep. 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. 4 in 14 carat gold. It has an extra fine width point.
I have fully serviced this pen. The nib is very smooth and produces a very nice wet and extra fine width line.
