Condition Excellent condition with no cracks or chips. This is a smallish, slim pen that is shiny and that is in a classic style. The coloration is inconsistent: the barrel is quite dark whereas the cap has variation from light green at the top to a darker green (though not as dark as the barrel) and with some slight reddening mid-cap. The barrell has marks caused by the cap lip and light to moderate scratching. The black blind cap has faded to a greenish brown. The cap has light to moderate scratching with some small dot-like marks and a few longer scratch lines. The wide cap band has moderate microscratching and one blotch of plating wear. The ring top has brassing and plating wear along the edges of the base, but the ring itself looks great. The imprints are clear.
