Wahl-Eversharp introduced the Skyline in 1941, designed by Henry Dreyfus who brought his engineering expertise designing locomotives trains to bear on this iconic fountain pen. The Eversharp skyline when held front on looks like a long train, its carriages trailing off into the distance. It is a remarkable design and one of the best selling fountain pens in US history.
This example has been restored and is ready to write. It has a beautifully smooth 14k gold fine nib, which writes a generous fine, close to a fine / medium. Please see the writing sample attached. The gold filled cap is a marvel of design, this is a vintage classic which has stood the test of time.
There are no major imperfections to note, no chips splits or engravings.
The barrel has been personalized as photographed
Only minor micro-scratches around the barrel, a touch of brassing to the gold trim but otherwise an excellent example.
