Description

Details

Type Fountain Pen

Product Name This is the short "stubby" version of the Moore Maniflex, similar to the 94-A, but we don't know what its official numbering system was.

Manufacturer and Year  The Moore Pen Co., Boston, Mass., USA -- early 1940s

Length  4-1/2"

Filling System  Lever filler - new sac

Color "Green Snakeskin" body and cap. It is a green and black marbled pattern broken up with black striations. It has a large 3/16" cap band in a stacked coins pattern that matches the snakeskin patterning. Gold plated trim.

Nib  Flexible Fine Nib. It is smooth and the tines spread easily and far. The nib is labeled, "Moore 6 14kt"

Condition  Excellent condition. The pen looks good in hand but has some major wear. The cap has bite marks and some cracks near the very top to the right of the clip, so we don't recommend pulling the clip out very far. The cap band is rough and the barrel has cap marks and light scratches. The barrel has no discernible imprint.The pen has been fully restored and it writes very 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.
