Filling System Lever filler. We've restored it with a new sac and it's working very well.

Nib MEDIUM 14k gold Diamond Medal #2 nib is very smooth with nice tipping. Firm with a little give.
Condition Very nice condition with no cracks. This is a short, colorful, shiny pen in a classic design. The color is inconsistent with quite a bit of darkening on the barrel and a about 3/4 of the cap. The true green color can be seen on parts of the cap. The cap and barrel have moderate scratching, mostly small, deep scratch marks. The barrel has marks caused by the cap lip. The lever has brassing, small scratches, and some pitting along the top edge. The cap band has light scratching and a line of plating wear on the bottom edge -- it looks quite nice. The ring top has brassing, plating wear, and a small dent, but it is sturdy and nice. The imprints are crystal clear.
