Type  Vintage technical pen.

Product Name  Rapidograph No. 1 (marked on the lower barrel).

Manufacturer and Year  Koh-i-Noor, made in Germany -- circa 1930s or '40s. It is really an early style and the cap does not resemble the familiar Rapidograph cap.

Length  5-1/8".

Filling System  Piston filling system. The tip is possibly clogged, or the seals are bad, so we couldn't test the filling system, though the piston does move freely up and down.

Color  Black hard rubber cap and end piece, with a clear and black plastic barrel.

Nib  #1 wire stylus point

Condition  Very nice condtion cosmetically. We were able to confirm the piston moves up and down, but the pen doesn't take in water so it needs further restoration to work. No cracks or chips, dings or dents, or personalization. There's some brassing on the cap band and the clip, and a few tiny scratches on the cap and barrel, as well as some slight hand wear.

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 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.
