Condition Superior condition with no cracks. This is a small, dainty pen (thus the name "Lady Dainty") with nice chasing and shine. The color on the cap and barrel is dark and the chasing is crisp. The cap and barrel have light scratching. The barrel has marks caused by the cap lip. There are some more moderate scratches at the end of the barrel caused by posting. Both lever and ringtop have scratching and dots of pitting. The left edge of the imprint is slightly faded, but the rest is crisp, clear, and easily readable.
