Product Name  Conklin Nozac Word Gauge, 5M version

Manufacturer and Year  Conklin, USA -- Circa 1934.

Color  Red and gray marble celluloid with an amber semi-transparent window for the "Word Gauge" system. The barrel is like a graduated cylinder where the tick marks show how many words can be written before the pen runs out of ink. It has gold filled trim and two cap bands, and a black ribbed end piece.

Nib  Flexible Fine 14k Conklin nib. It has a crescent breather hole and offers nice line variation. Please see the writing sample below.

Condition  Excellent condition. The barrel has a slight recessed area on the barrel from posting. The clip shows some plating wear and the cap band closer to the lip is a bit crooked and brassed. The imprints are legible and the barrel transparency is strong. The word gauge system is ready to go.

Returns Policy: No questions asked, money back guarantee. If you have a problem with an item, we will replace/repair it, or refund your money, the choice is up to you.

Payment Policy: Paying via Credit Card or PayPal are the only methods allowed for addresses outside the United States. Customers from the United States also have the option of sending a check, money order or cashier's check. Payment method is selected during checkout.

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 of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.

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.
