Type  Lever filling fountain pen, and matching pencil, restored and working well.

Product Name  Symphony, model 500, first generation, as identified by metal barrel threads.

Manufacturer and Year  Eversharp, made in USA -- 1948-49.

Length  5-9/16".

Filling System  Lever filler. We've restored it with a new sac and it's working very well. The pencil takes .9mm leads.

Color  Red section and barrel. Chrome plated cap and gold plated trim. We've seen the cap referred to as chrome plated and as stainless steel, but it's clearly plated based off of when we looked at caps with heavier wear. This is the original slipper cap style. The body has metal cap threads.

Nib  Manifold Medium  (as identified by sticker) Eversharp 14k nib. It writes smoothly. The nib is only slightly springy. 

Condition  New old stock condition with  pitting on the caps and the lever of the fountain pen (see photos below). No dents or major scratches.  We've fully restored the pen and it is working well.

This model is very hard to find without pitting to the metal caps. We have a few sets that are in perfect condition, and some which have a lot of pitting such as this set, and we have priced it accordingly.

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.
