OS024 Osmiroid Lettering Set, boxed.

Date: c1960s

Size: Length - 137mm capped; 152mm posted.

This boxed lettering set includes a black Osmiroid 65 fountain pen and six Osmiroid nibs.

Fountain Pen

The fountain pen is in really nice, almost unused, condition.  There are no cracks, splits or chips and no noticeable surface scratches either.  The black plastic has a nice original sheen, and I really can't find anything at all wrong with this one.  The cap has a chrome plated pocket clip and cap band.  The barrel has a nice crisp and deep imprint.  The filling lever is chrome plated.  all the trim is in undamaged and unbrassed condition.

Nibs

The Osmiriod nib units are also compatible with Esterbrook fountain pens, and vice versa.  The six nibs consist of one Fine Left-Handed Italic, one Medium Italic, one Broad Italic, one "B2", two "B3", and one "B4".  All are gold plated and all are undamaged and appear to have never been used.  

Box

Pen and nibs are both housed in a black and white board box.  It is in very good condition with just the usual edge and corner scuffing.  Inside, the nibs and pen fit into a white plastic tray.  Also in the box is the original instruction sheet.    

I have replaced the ink sac in the pen.  I have not tested the nibs as they all appear to be unused - generally, though, these Osmiroid nibs produce good, clean lines. 

This is probably the best Osmiroid Lettering Set I have ever had. It is almost certainly unused; both the pen and the nibs are in near perfect condition.
