CS951 Conway Stewart No. 85L (Semi-Flexible Medium)

Date: c1950s

Size: Length Capped - 136mm; Length Posted - 165mm.

As its name would suggest this is the longer version of the Model 85.  It is in very good condition with just the usual high-point and edge plating wear to the pocket clip that one so often sees on these pens, and a general thinning of the plating on the cap band.  Otherwise I can find no damage at all on this lovely glossy pen.  The cap has a black conical end "jewel" with a gold filled bezel, cap band, and long straight pocket clip.  The clip has the "CS" logo at the top within a diamond shaped cartouche and another diamond at the bottom.  The barrel imprint is still easily read, and it appears nice and crisp and deep.  It is fitted with a short gold filled filling lever with a diamond and "CS" logo imprinted within the circular end tab.  The glossy black section holds the super No. 3 Conway Stewart nib, which is 14 carat gold, undamaged, and in a medium point. 

I have fully serviced this pen.  The nib writes very smoothly with a good wet medium width line.  It is a soft nib - I would say semi-flexible, and it will give you some very attractive line width variation from a fine to a broad width as you write.
