A glossy celluloid Stephen's No 76 in good condition and in a blue and black marbled celluloid. The only thing to mention on this pen is the fading in colour of the barrel, especially the front part, which has ambered and gone semi-translucent. Colour change and ambering in celluloid pens is caused by the degradation of the latex ink sacs and is very common. The pen is otherwise in excellent and undamaged condition. The cap has a large black hard rubber conical ended top button. The pocket clip is nickel plated and is of the fairly early ball-ended type with "Stephen's" imprinted down the stem. There is also a single narrow cap band. The imprint is strong a clear throughout. The nib is a Stephen's Warranted No. 76, in 14 carat gold and in a medium point.
I have fully serviced this pen. The nib is very smooth as most Stephen's nibs seem to be and writes with a wet and consistent medium width line.
I very rarely get to find Stephen's pens. I am not sure why that should be, but this one writes beautifully and would make a great, inexpensive, everyday writer.
