ME193 Mentmore Auto-Flow, boxed. (Broad)

Date: c1930s

Size: Length - 5 1/16 inches capped; 6 7/16 inches posted.

A very attractive full-sized Mentmore.  This example of the Auto-Flow pen is in excellent condition, with just some plating wear to the pocket clip ball, and a tiny bit of foxing to the cap band; neither of which are noticeable without magnification.  Both cap and barrel are made from glossy jet black celluloid, with no noticeable scratches or any other damage that I can see.  The cap has a large flat black hard rubber top button that holds on the gold filled and ball-ended pocket clip with the Mentmore "M" on the shoulder.  Near the cap lip is a single narrow gold plated band.  This is a button filled pen and the filling button is accessible after you have unscrewed the barrel end blind cap.  The nib is a nice large 14 carat Mentmore in what looks to be a broad point size.  The box is actually for a Mentmore Supreme, but this was the box that the pen was in when I found it, so I am keeping them together.  It is entirely possible that the pen was sold in this box - perhaps the retailer got them muddled up. Inside the box, along with the pen, is an instruction/guarantee sheet for the stud (button) filled pens. 

have fully serviced this pen.  The nib is very smooth and lays down a great wet and consistent broad width line.
