Description

Details

Type  vintage eyedropper filling system fountain pen with a flexible nib. 

Product Name  Swan with an unknown number

Manufacturer and Year  Mabie Todd & Co., New York -- 1930s

Length   A little under 3-1/2"

Filling System  Eyedropper filler. We've restored it with a new sac and it's working well.

Color  Black hard rubber with solid 14k overlay.  The pen is marked 14k at the end of the barrel and at the top of the cap.   The main pattern of the pen is lengthwise fine lines.  The pen is personalized "A.D.I." in mid-barrel.

Nib  FULLY FLEXIBLE FINE 14k Mabie Todd  nib. It's very smooth with good tipping. It's got very good line variation and feels very soft. The tip of the nib is curved downward, probably an adjustment needed to bring the tines back together after the nib was over-flexed.  See our writing sample below.

Condition  Very nice condition for this diminuitive ring top pen.  The section has a number of small, deep scratch marks, though it is a very shiny black in appearance.  The barrel has some light scratching and some definite dings toward and at the end.  The cap has moderate scratching at the top, with some small dings and at the bottom below one of the air holes.  The ring top looks great. There is a personalization, "A.D.I." in mid barrel.  The imprints are clear.

Returns Policy: No questions asked, money back guarantee. If you have a problem with an item, we will replace/repair it, or refund your money, the choice is up to you. If you decide you don't like the nib after you've inked a new pen, we'll refund 75%. (There will be no such charge for a pen that is pre-owned, provided you return it in the condition received.) Of course, if it's a defect, we'll refund 100%.

Payment Policy: Paying via Credit Card or PayPal are the only methods allowed for addresses outside the United States. Customers from the United States also have the option of sending a check, money order or cashier's check. Payment method is selected during checkout.

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.
