Description

Details

Type  Vintage lever filling fountain pen, and mechanical pencil set

Product Name  Unknown

Manufacturer and Year  LeBoeuf, Springfield, Mass. – circa 1920s

Length  Fountain pen is 5-1/8" capped. Pencil is 5" .

Filling System  Fountain pen is a lever filler. We've restored it with a new sac and it's working well. Pencil uses 0.9mm leads, which extend and retract by the traditional twist mechanism.

Color  Green Pearl celluloid with gold plated trim. Really pretty shades of sage green, and the material exhibits a really nice changeable luster with a 3D effect, as you look at the pieces from different angles.

Nib  FLEXIBLE FINE gold LeBoeuf #4 nib is smooth with nice tipping. It flexes easily from medium to a nice larger broad with very little pressure. See writing sample below. NOTE: There is a short crack in the base of the nib, which you can see in the nib closeup shot. This is a stable crack, but the nib should not be over-flexed. (Important note: We cannot give you a refund if you pull or tamper with the nib.)

Condition  Excellent condition. Fountain pen: Lovely and smooth, no scratches, cracks, or chips. Color is gorgeous and even throughout, and quite shiny. The nib is nice and smooth, and gives nice line variation without very much pressure. It does have a crack in the base of the nib, which does not affect the pen's function; we do recommend keeping an eye on it. Slight brassing on the edges of the clip and on the cap ring.  Pencil: The color is equally as excellent as the pen, but there are some cracks, especially in the top half of the pencil. Use caution when twisting the lead in and out, so that you don't stress those cracks further. The nose cone also has some surface toolmarks, which do not affect the function. Slight brassing on the edges of both clip and trim ring. Both pieces are fully restored and working well.

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.
