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

It shows only minor surface wear and some teething marks on the blind cap but otherwise a lovely shiny example 

 

Writing Style

Please take a look at the writing sample in the photo gallery - a unique a beautiful nib
