SW683 Swan Leverless Eternal. (Medium).

Date: c1930s

1/43/8 inches; posted - 6 5/16 inches.

An impressive and glossy Swan Leverless pen with a large and superb Swan Eternal No. 4 nib.  This pen is made from green marbled celluloid.   It is in good condition, with plating wear to the upper surface of the ball-shaped pocket clip terminal, the pocket clip shoulder and to the cap bands.   This pen would be a good buy for use as a daily writer to make the most out of that super Eternal nib.  The Eternal nibs were made to last a lifetime and were made from thicker gold, so are firmer than many other Swan nibs of the time.  This is one of those pre-war flat-topped Swans.  The cap has a black hard rubber top button with an inset gold disc at the top which as a swan in relief.  The pocket clip is held on by the top button.  It has the Swan logo imprinted at the shoulder, a ridged stem and a ball at the bottom.  There are three narrow gold filled cap bands.  The barrel has a good sharp imprint and a black hard rubber knurled blind cap that is twisted to fill the pen.  The nib is a nice large Swan Eternal No. 4 made from 14 carat gold and in a medium point.

I have fully serviced this pen.  It writes with a very smooth action.  It lays down an excellent wet line.   The Eternal nib is a large No. 4 size, and whilst it looks the business it also writes very well indeed.  

Not a display pen, but a good solid writer.
