Type  Lever filling vintage fountain pen in working condition

Product Name  Probably the Glider model. The nib is marked Conklin Cushion Point and the body is marked Conklin Chicago.

Manufacturer and Year  Conklin, Chicago, 1939 to late 1940s

Length  5-1/16"

Filling System  Lever filler. We've replaced the sac and tested the pen and it works great.

Color  Striped grey and blue. The trim was lightly gold plated, but the plating is gone from everything but the cap band. We have yet to see one of these that wasn't worn in the exact same way!

Nib  14k gold Conklin Cushion nib. Fine, with really good flex, verging on full flex. Excellent tipping material in evidence. The nib is in beautiful condition.

Condition  Nice condition with good looking celluloid, but the trim is worn. No cracks or chips, and few marks but overall very shiny There is quite a bit of plating wear on the clip and lever, but the cap band is very good with almost no wear. (Perhaps evidence that these Chicago made last-gasp Conklins were indeed made up of left-over parts.) Really good visibility in the clear part of the section.

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 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.
