Type Vintage combination lever filling fountain pen and mechanical pencil.
Product Name Exceptional.
Manufacturer and Year Pick Pen Co., Cincinnati, Ohio -- 1920-33.
Filling System Lever filler. We've restored it with a new sac and its working well. The pencil portion takes 1.1mm leads, which extend and retract by twisting the nose cone.
Color Black and Pearl with gold plated trim.
Nib FINE Gold Pick #1 nib is smooth with nice tipping material. The nib has a nice amount of flex, enough to get line width from fine to double broad. Soft feeling, it flexes easily. We've got a writing sample below to give you some idea of the line variation possible.
Condition Very nice condition. There is a crack in the celluloid at the top of the cap, about 3/8" long. It doesn't affect the function of the pen, and should remain stable providing that the pen doesn't jump off of your desk onto a hard surface (really, good advice for all your pens!). There is light scratching and handwear, as well as some brassing on the cap band and ball of the clip. The lever and nose cone also have brassing and some pitting. The imprints are very clear. It's fully restored and working well.
