Type Lever filling vintage fountain pen and mechanical pencil set
Product Name Endura Symetrik (marked on the fountain pen barrel).
Manufacturer and Year Conklin, Toledo Ohio – circa 1930s.
Length Both pieces are 5-1/8" long. We believe this is the standard size, but it might be the "large" size as we have not been able to find measurements. It's definitely not the oversize version, which is over 5-1/2" in length.
Filling System Lever filler. We've restored it with a new sac and it's working very well. The mechanical pencil takes 1.1mm leads. A packet of leads will be included.
Color Black and Bronze. Gold plated trim. The pen and pencil have two gold cap bands each. Ends are rounded on both pieces. There's a faint line on the barrel like you see on the flat ended Enduras, but there's no corresponding line on the cap, which instead has one of the embedded crescents.
Nib FINE flexible gold Toledo nib. Line variation from fine to broad. Please see writing sample below.
Condition Excellent condition with fantastic color. No cracks, chips, dents, or dings. The fountain pen has light wear. The cap has light to moderate scratching. The barrel has marks from capping and posting. The clip has a small touch of brassing near the open end, but is otherwise beatiful. The lever looks great. The bottom of the cap bands has some light pitting. The mechanical pencil has light overall scratching but no major marks. The cone, clip and bands are excellent. The imprints are clear.
