Condition Excellent condition with no cracks, chips, dents, or dings. This is a small, shiny pen in a great color and with an excellent decorated cap band. The barrel has marks caused by the cap lip and mainly light scratching with a few small, deeper marks. The cap has light to some small areas of moderate scratching including one long, thin scratch line to the right of the clip. The cap band has some microscratching but it looks great and the pattern is intact. The clip has two small areas of plating wear on the top edges of the arrow end. The clip ring has a small amount of plating wear along the lower edge. The black jewel has some small scratches but it looks nice. The imprints are faded and can be partially made out.
