Condition Excellent condition for this great looking pen in an attractive color pattern. The main flaw is the poor condition of the plating on the clip. The cap and barrel have light to moderate scratching. The barrel has great transparency on the first 1/2". There is some heavier scratching on the barrel just above the black end piece. The cap has heavier scratching above and below the cap band and to the right of the clip. The cap band has brassing and microscratching. The clip ring has some plating wear. The black end pieces look good. The imprint on the cap is clear as are the model and nib size imprints near the end of the barrel.
