Condition Very nice condition for this petite, dainty ring-top pen. The barrel color has faded to a tan/gold especially along the lines. The cap color is a pastel green and also has a bit of discoloration. The barrel has marks caused by the cap lip, light to moderate scratching and a few blotchy marks. The end piece and section look good. The cap has light scratching, a few dots of brown, a shaved area just above the top cap band, and cracks on the cap lip. The cap bands have microscratching and the top one has a little dimple along the top edge. The ring-top has pitting. The imprints are readable.
