Type  Early eyedropper fountain pen, cleaned and working well.

Product Name  Unknown. It's very similar to the "Macy's Reliable" pen we've had by this company before, and the only company indication comes from their logo on the clip. Byers & Hayes made pens under their own name and sold them to retailers and other companies for secondary branding.

Manufacturer and Year  Byers & Hayes, New York -- 1920s-30s. Sold by Macys. The nib is marked Moore, but the clip has the B&H logo.

Length  5-1/2 inches.

Filling System  Eyedropper filling system. We've fully cleaned and tested it and it's working well. We'll include instructions on how to fill this pen, and the pieces you need for filling (not including ink).

Color  Black chased hard rubber with a steel or nickel plated clip. 

Nib  SEMI-FLEX MEDIUM The Moore Pen #2 gold nib. It's very smooth with excellent tipping material. It has a bit less line variation than nibs we would describe as "full flex," this one has nice variation from medium to broad under only light pressure. See sample below.

Condition  Excellent condition. No chips, dings, dents, or personalization. There's a short scratch on the lip of the cap which we don't think is a crack, nonetheless we do not recommend posting the cap. There are two faint scuffs on the cap, just above the clip. The chasing is very crisp and nice, the pen has been fully restored and working well.

The barrel is engraved "H. C. Romberger" (see photos below).
