Type Fountain pen
Product Name Matador Standard 811
Manufacturer and Year Matador, Germany - c. 1930s. Matador is a Trademark of the German manufacturer Siebert & Loewen, founded in 1895.
Filling System Piston-filler. Restored with a new cork seal here at PSP.
Color Transparent greyish blue demonstrator with silver colored cap band and clip.
Nib Fine semi-flexible nib. We don't think it is 14k or 18k because we've seen this same nib with wear on another pen and it looked like it's steel to us. See writing sample below.
Condition Excellent condition. No cracks, chips, dents, or dings. The barrel looks good, with light scratching and handwear, and one scratch nearly halfway down the striped portion that goes nearly all the way around the barrel. The section and end both look nice. The piston knob is a bit stiff, but should loosen up with some use. The cap also looks nice, with light scratching. The clip and cap ring both have light brassing. The imprints are clear.
