The nib has been tuned and writes beautifully with a good degree of flex and line variation (see writing samples).
A new inc sac has been installed and the pen is ready to write!
There are no major imperfections to note, no chips cracks or engravings
There are micro-scratches on the cap and barrel, but otherwise the pen is excellent / near mint
The box is tatty and shows its age, but the original instructions are present and in good condition
The 14k Gold Nib has been tuned and writes beautifully.
The nib flexes from a fine to a medium / broad and is a delight to write with.
A medium wet writer, it lays down plenty of ink, and is everything one might expect from a Swan No.1 Nib - lovely
