Type  Fountain pen, working well.

Product Name  Mark Twain Crescent 

Manufacturer and Year  Conklin (Modern), USA -- of recent manufacture

Length  5-5/8 inches.

Filling System  Conklin crescent filling system. Rotate the band to where the gap aligns with the crescent, and press while the nib is in ink. Then rotate the band to block the crescent from being pushed and compressing the sac when you're traveling with it. 

Color  Black and White zebra pattern acrylic pen with black trim and nib.  The cap band has the Conklin imprint and a Mark Twain signature.  He was evidently very keen on the crescent filling system, and the modern Conklin maker gets a lot of mileage from the association.

Nib  Medium black nib. Very smooth with no noticeable wear.  The nib has a "M" on the side.  There's a bit of springiness to it, so you get a little line variation. See the writing sample, below.

Condition  Excellent + condition  for this uniquely colored and designed pen that is substantial in size.   The pen has light scratching, particularly noticeable on the black patches.   The clip and crescent are in excellent condition.  The imprints are all very clear.  No cracks, deep scratches, dents, or dings.

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.
