Overview

The SWAN minor features a stepped cap, black metal lever bar and a brilliant 14k gold extra fine nib, which offers a hint of flex, and writes a dry line. Perfect for quick writers who love fine nibs, and are looking for that little bit of vintage 'flair' in their lettering. 

 

Condition

The fountain pen is in very good condition.

 

Servicing

The pen has been taken apart, cleaned, polished and fitted with a new ink sac

 

Imperfections 

There are no major imperfections to note, no chips cracks or engravings

The clip is tarnished and shows mottling, and the cap and barrel show minor surface wear, but otherwise a very nice clean example

The imprints are nice and clear and legibly read: SWAN Minor by Mabie Todd & Co. Ltd 

 

Writing Style

The 14k Gold Nib is an extra fine which offers a touch of flex and writes a dry line.
