Condition Excellent + condition. No cracks, chips, dents, or dings. This is a uniquely designed pen in a velvety black color with lovely chasing. The chasing on the cap is really crisp and even. The barrel chasing is slightly worn, which is expected, but the pattern is still recognizable. The barrel has faint marks caused by the cap lip and light scratching and light scratching toward the end. The cap has very light scratching. The clip has some brassing around the ends. The crescent looks excellent. The imprints are slightly faded but still readable.
