Type  Classic style fountain pen

Product Name   We are judging this to be the older style faceted Paragon pen aka 557/F "Black", though it is not marked. (The 557 refers to the length and F refers to the facets.)

Manufacturer and Year  Omas, Italy -- probably dating from the early 2000s based off of the clip and nib.

Length  5-5/8" -- this was the largest pen at the time and considered a Paragon model. It is smaller than the current Paragons which debuted in 2005, and a bit bigger than the current Milords.

Filling System  Piston filler has been checked and is working well

Color  A black barrel and cap made of natural cotton resin. The barrel and cap have "Hi-Tech" or a rhodium based trim and are 12-faceted. The barrel is unlabeled.

Nib  18k Medium nib with only slight spring and smooth like Omas is expected to be.

Condition  Excellent + condition. A few light marks on the faceted resin, but no cracks or chips. There is some wear on the cap band and section band, but no brassing. The trim ring on the piston knob is a yellowish, so there is some plating wear there. Fully guaranteed. Ships in Omas Paragon box (not original to this pen), with a bottle of black Omas ink.

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.
