The Nitty Gritty
There are no major imperfections to note, no chips cracks or engravings, nor signs of minor surface wear.

Writing Style & Nib Appraisal
The nib is a fine steel nib, Conklin nibs have a steady reputation as being smooth, responsive and to provide good ink flow via the 'Conklin crescent' breather hole.
Why not pair with a bottle of J Herbin ink? A bright shimmer ink would suit this pen very well!
