A very nice full-sized English Summit made from glossy black chased celluloid and from probably the late 1930s. It is in very good condition with no splits, cracks or chips, and no noticeable surface scratches either. All the plating looks to be in very nice bright and shiny condition. The only damage I was able to spot on this pen is the colour fading to the hard rubber cap top button which is a very common thing on these pens. The cap has a conical-ended black hard rubber top button that holds on the gold filled washer style ball ended Summit pocket clip. Below the pocket clip is a very narrow gold filled cap band. The barrel and cap are both chased with the popular barleycorn pattern, and this chasing is still crisp and deep with no noticeable wear. The barrel imprint is very nice, being sharp and well-defined. The long and narrow filling lever is also gold filled. The nib is a shiny Summit in 14 carat gold. It looks to me like a medium stub point.
I have fully serviced this pen. The nib writes very smoothly and produces a very nice wet medium width line. It is cut straight across with the rounded corners of a stub nib, and whilst this means that it is better suited to cursive writing than an italic nib, the trade-off is reduced line width variation. You will see some variation with this pen as you write, from a fine width to a broad.
