Description

Details

Type  Combo pen.

Product Name  Unbreakable model

Manufacturer and Year  Secretary, a sub-brand of Newark Pen Co., a third tier company, made in USA -- 1930s-40s.

Length  5-1/4".

Filling System  Lever filler on the fountain pen end. We restored it with a new sac and it's working very well. Twist mechanical pencil on the other end. It takes "thick" or 1.1mm leads.

Color  Pearlescent yellow with black veins. It has a 1/8" detailed cap band. The yellow looks pretty green in the photographs but is much lighter and on the yellow side in hand.

Nib  FINE 14k Secretary nib is smooth with good tipping. It is a little springy but not flexible. There is a dent centered on the slit that shows on the two tines. It is a little deeper on the left tine and has some black filled in as a result. The dent hasn't affected flow as far as we've tested.

Condition  Excellent condition. There is handwear and the imprint is a bit worn but legible. The heaviest wear shows in the trim which is very worn on the cone and ring top mechanism. The lever and cap band are a little brassed but not too much. There are two or three hairline cracks in the cap that follow the outlines of the celluloid chunks, but they do not extend to the edges and they blend very well into the patterning and appear stable. The pen is restored and working very well. It has been personalized, "Anna Rhoads Garland."

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.
