Description

Details

Type  Fountain pen set in excellent condition

Product Name  Skyline

Manufacturer and Year  Eversharp, USA -- 1940s.

Length  The fountain pen measures 5-5/16" and the pencil measures 5-1/8".

Filling System  The fountain pen has a lever filling system. We replaced the sac and it's working well. The pencil has a clicker mechanism to extend and retract the leads but it doesn't clutch super firmly so when you press the button the leads shoot out. Be careful. It takes 0.9mm leads.

Color  Burgundy derby, barrel, and section called "Dubonnet Red." The cap, or cap equivalent for the pencil, also is green/black striated celluloid. It also has a 3/16" cap band which is fairly uncommon. The trim is gold filled.

Nib  EXTRA FINE 14k nib. It's got nice tipping and feels smooth. It is a bit springy, but no line variation.

Condition  Very nice condition. Both cap bands are heavily brassed. The fountain pen cap has a dent in it and additional brassing on the derby, including the clip portions, and lever. The pencil cone is nearly entirely brassed but it is shiny and not too much darker than the original gold filling. The clip wiggles a bit and the trim near the clip is worn. The Dubonnet parts of both pieces have handwear but no major scratches. All imprints can be read. The fountain pen is fully restored and both are working well.

Policies

Returns Policy: No questions asked, money back guarantee. If you have a problem with an item, we will replace/repair it, or refund your money, the choice is up to you. If you decide you don't like the nib after you've inked a new pen, we'll refund 75%. (There will be no such charge for a pen that is pre-owned, provided you return it in the condition received.) Of course, if it's a defect, we'll refund 100%.

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.

Promo Codes and Coupons: You need to be registered and logged in in order to use one of our promo codes. They can each only be used once per customer. If you have problems getting a promo code to be accepted, sometimes it helps to log out and log back in again.
