SW809 Blackbird Leverless. (Medium).

Date: c1950s

Size: Capped - 129mm; posted - 149mm.

A very unusual and rather late model Blackbird Leverless pen.  This item is in excellent condition still and very unusually has the remains of its original paper sales label affixed to the cap.  The cap has a gold plated top stud which holds on the tapering gold plated Blackbird pocket clip.  Below this there is a very narrow gold plated band.  The end of the barrel will unscrew to reveal the original alloy twist-fill button.  at the forward end of the barrel is a lovely crisp and clear imprint.  The cap unscrews, revealing a sort black hard rubber gripping section and a very nice little Blackbird nib in 14carat gold.  This nib is in a medium point,

I have fully serviced this pen.  The nib is very smooth when writing and lays down a good generous medium width wet and consistent line. 

A very unusual Blackbird pen in excellent condition.
