ME230 Mentmore Auto-Flow (Fine)

Date: c1930s

Size: Length - 125mm capped; 156mm posted.

An attractive full-sized Mentmore.  This one has the ball-ended pocket clip, lever fill mechanism, and is made from a lovely silver grey and black.  It is in good condition, having extensive plating wear to the pocket clip, and some foxing on the filling lever.  Both cap and barrel have a lovely original gloss and no noticeable surface scratches.  The cap has a large flat black hard rubber top button that holds on the gold filled pocket clip with the Mentmore "M" on the shoulder.  It is still a great deep, black colour with no noticeable fading.  Near the cap lip is a single narrow gold plated band. The filling lever has the Mentmore "M" on the end tab and is also gold-filled.  To the side of the barrel is a nice, crisp but quite shallow imprint.   The nib is a large 14 carat Mentmore in what looks to be a fine point size.

I have fully serviced this pen.  The nib is very smooth and lays down a great wet and consistent line with a fine width. 

I do not often get these older Mentmore pens and it is very unusual to find one in this particularly striking colour.
