Type Vintage combination lever fill fountain pen and mechanical pencil.
Product Name Unknown
Manufacturer and Year John Holland, USA - 1930s
Filling System Lever filler (We have replaced the bladder and it works very well.) The pencil takes short 1.1mm leads, but the tip is jammed.
Color Deep blue and antique gold or bronze colored celluloid barrel and cap with black sections. Gold trim. The pencil's nose cone is marked "14k gold filled". Slightly humped clip.
Nib EXTRA FINE FLEXIBLE John Holland CIN.O #12 nib. Line variation from extra fine to medium. Please see writing sample.
Condition Excellent condition with no cracks. This is a beautifully colored, shiny multifunction pen and mechanical pencil. The barrel has light marks caused by the cap lip. The section has some light tool marks. The rest of the barrel has only light microscratching. The lever bar has plating wear on the sides. The cap looks good, with one scratch about 90 degrees to the right of the clip, near the cap bands. The cap bands have slight brassing. The clip has some dents and pitting, as well as brassing around the edges and ball end. The pencil side of the unit looks pretty good. There are some dents on the nose cone - probably from pliers where someone tried to pull it out of the section. There is a lead stuck in the nose cone, so this half is currently not functional. The nose cone does twist, and we think that someone with more patience with mechanical pencils might be able to drill it out and get it operational again.
