Type Lever filling vintage fountain pen in excellent working condition.
Product Name Conklin Endura (the imprint is readable)
Manufacturer and Year Conklin, Toledo Ohio - mid-1920s
Length 4-1/4" long. This does not include the emblem (Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks) that's mounted on the top of the cap.
Filling System Lever filler. The pen has been fully restored with a new sac.
Color Black celluloid. There are some lines engraved around the barrel, and the grooves still show some of the original orange paint.
Nib MEDIUM gold Conklin Endura nib is flexible, good for every day writing, but not full flex. With some pressure it can produce a double broad line. Nice tipping material remaining, it feels quite smooth. There is a fair bit of scuffing on the face of the nib, but this does not affect the pen's function. See our writing sample.
Condition Excellent condition. There's no gold cap finial like we usually see on ring tops. The finial has been removed, the edge smoothed, and a small (3/8") Elks emblem was mounted on top of the cap. The lower edge of the cap band is fully brassed, and the upper edge has a section of brassing. The tab end of the lever has brassing around the edge. There's light scratching on the pen's body and cap. No cracks or chips. The coloring of the pen is dark and even. Fully restored and working well.
