Type  Rollerball pen

Product Name  Classic Century, this is the early version. This is not to be confused with the "Classic Century" which is more slender and recent.

Manufacturer and Year  Cross, USA -- 1980s, this is current production and matches the current version. This is based off of the filling system, cap imprint, and clip imprint.

Length  5-3/8"

Filling System Takes Cross cartridges and the green Townsend converters. The converter does fit and is the converter model that shipped in the box with this model. The converter is easily jostled loose.

Color  Matte black with gold plated trim. The section is also black.

Nib  MEDIUM 14k nib is smooth and quite firm.

Condition  Near Mint condition. The pen has some slight handwear and polishing marks but it's very clean and the matte finish is pristine.

Payment Policy: Paying via Credit Card or PayPal are the only methods allowed for addresses outside the United States. Customers from the United States also have the option of sending a check, money order or cashier's check. Payment method is selected during checkout.

Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country. Most of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.

Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.

UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.
