Condition New old stock and in unused condition for this pretty little pen. The color is bright and consistent and the pen has a nice sheen. Barrel and cap have light scratching, but no deep scratches. The clip and trim were very thinly plated to begin with, and very little of the plating survived polishing though these pens have never been used. No cracks or chips. The imprints are clear.
