Description

Details

Type  Crescent filling vintage fountain pen in great condition with a fully flexible nib.

Product Name  Crescent, Model 25P (the imprint reads "Trade Mark 25 P" at the end of the barrel). The 2 is for the nib size. The 5 is for a slender pen and a P is for a short pen.

Manufacturer and Year  Conklin, made in USA -- early 1920s.

Length  4-3/8".

Filling System  Crescent filler. We've restored it with a new sac and it's working very well.

Color  Black chased hard rubber with gold filled trim consisting of a ring top, crescent, and 1/4" cap band. The cap band marks the gold as 1/5th 14k.

Nib  FLEXIBLE FINE Conklin #2 Toledo gold nib is very smooth with nice tipping. The tines spread very easily for strong line variation. It is enough for us to call it fully flexible. The tines have a bit of a wrinkle to them as well, but it does not affect writing. See our writing sample below.

Condition   Superior condition. The chasing and color are perfect on the cap and only faded towards the end of the barrel. The trim has a few marks on it, especially on the underside of the lever, but no plating wear. The locking mechanism for the crescent moves well. The imprints are crisp. It ships in a vintage Conklin box and is fully restored.

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.
