Condition Excellent condition for this oversized, hard to find model, fountain pen. This is a large shiny pen in a nice color. The barrel has heavy marks caused by the cap lip and by posting. It has moderate overall scratching. There is a network of shallow fissures just under the threads on the barrel, but these did not prevent us from re-saccing the pen. The lever has a bit of plating wear and a teeny ding. The cap has moderate to some heavier scratching near the top. The cap band has brassing and plating wear. The clip has plating wear along edges. The model number on the flat end of the barrel is a clear "5117". The imprints on the barrel and nice and clear with the white lettering still intact.
