I WILL ONLY BE ABLE TO DISPATCH ITEMS THIS SATURDAY OR AFTERWARDS. I have for sale here a Vintage Mabie Todd Swan Self-Filler fountain pen. This pen, as with the 3361 I have for sale, is made from Black Hard Rubber, an uncommon material for a pen of its time. The pen had previously experienced some strong discolouration, so I have attempted to treat it with Pensbury Manor No. 9 Potion – a non-permanent dye. I cannot claim to be an expert with the application of such solutions, and the application of the dye has some imperfections. The resulting appearance is still, however, better than the unprotected body – in my opinion – and regardless, the dye acts as protection to the rubber beneath. The pen has also been fitted with a new sac, and the lever filling system is fully working. It is fitted with a #2 Nib, with quite a bit of flex. With pressure applied on the downstrokes, it provides a very good writing experience. When unflexed there is a tiny amount of bite – though this isn’t very noticeable at all. I have found that the cap does often fill with in when the pen is stored horizontally. Thus, it may benefit from a little adjustment of the nib and feed. However, stored cap upwards, this poses no problem. The barrel imprint reads. MABIE, TODD & CO. The nib is also stamped. Please examine the attached photos to grasp fully the condition of the pen. As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to ask. The item “Vintage Mabie Todd Swan Self-Filler Fountain Pen Very Flexible 14k Nib Black” is in sale since Sunday, February 11, 2018.
