Description

Details

Type  Modern fountain pen

Product Name  Model 20 "Marietta".

Manufacturer and Year  Franklin-Christoph Pen Company, USA -- 2016 or 2017.

Length      5-7/16"

Filling System  Takes international cartridges and converters. A converter is installed and a pair of black and blue Franklin-Christoph cartridges are included.

Color  Blue semi-transparent material with a frosted texture and a matching filigree. It has recent clip that is slim and lays close to the cap.

Nib  Fine JoWo #6 steel nib with a S.I.G. grind. This is a high polished steel (HPS) nib with a stub italic gradient (SIG) grind. This is a Franklin-Christoph signature grind and their version of a cursive italic grind.

Condition  Near Mint, almost new condition. We don't consider it mint/new because we know the pen has been used. It has no handwear or usage signs. The section on this pen often gets ink caught in it from people over submerging their nib when filling and there is no evidence of that here. This material despite not being smooth is very resistant to ink staining. It's a good model for eyedroppering. The pen is working well. Ships with paperwork, cartridges, and the leather pen case that can only be obtained with the purchase of a pen. The similar case on the Franklin Christoph website is a different color.

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.
