Type Lever filling vintage fountain pen and mechanical pencil set, fully restored.
Product Name Endura (the imprint is clear on the barrel).
Manufacturer and Year Conklin, Toledo Ohio – this line of pens began circa 1924.
Length Fountain pen is Senior sized, right at 5-1/4". The pencil stretches almost to 5-1/2" long.
Filling System The pen is a lever filler. We've restored it with a new sac and it's working very well. The pencil takes 1.1mm "thick" leads, which are extended and retracted by twisting the top knob.
Color Black and Bronze (black celluloid with chunks of bronze-colored material). There are some grooves around the barrel which were once colored a sort of orangy yellow, though almost all of the color is gone now.
Nib EXTRA-FINE Gold nib marked Conklin Endura U.S.A. Firm but smooth, with nice, appropriate tipping material.
Condition Excellent condition. The fountain pen has some light scratches on the cap and barrel, especially on the end of the barrel caused by posting the cap. There are tiny dots of plating wear on the edges of the cap band. The open end of the clip has some brassing. The lever looks excellent. The pencil has light scratching on the barrel. The clip and decorative bands look great, no brassing or plating wear. The nose cone has light brassing, and a small dent in the opening, which does not affect extending or retracting the lead. No cracks or chips, dings or dents, and no personalization. The imprints are clear. It's fully restored and working well.
