The fountain pen is in overall very good condition.
The nib has been tuned and writes beautifully with a good degree of flex and line variation (see writing samples). The gold bands and trim have been polished, as has the cap and barrel. A new inc sac has been installed and the pen is ready to write
There are no major imperfections to note, the slightest of light scratches to the cap and barrel, and light brassing to the 3 gold bands usual on vintage pens.
The barrel imprints are faint and state: 'With Compliments Dominion Dairy Company Ltd Made by Mabie Todd & Co Ltd.' The pen is a rare and early example of a Swan Mabie Todd advertising pen, to our knowledge there are not many available of this edition on the market
The 14k Gold Nib has been tuned and writes beautifully with a semi flex nib
