Type  fountain pen 

Product Name  "L" pen. There is conflicting information about what the "L" stands for but based off of the font we believe it to be related to the Elite line.

Manufacturer and Year  Pilot, made in Japan -- 1981 (The date code on the nib says H981)

Length  5-1/8".

Filling System  Takes Pilot cartridges and some Pilot converters. (CON-70 converters do not fit.) An unused cartridge will be shipped with the pen.

Color  Green on green. Green lacquer with lighter green dots on the cap and barrel. The dots make up a series of diamond patterns. The section is plastic. The trim is gold plated.

Nib   FINE 14k nib is marked F. It's smooth with nice tipping material and feels fairly firm.

Condition  Very Nice condition. There are a few chips in the lacquer. The largest chip is near the clip. The cap lip has additional lacquer wear. The clip has some wear and the nib collar is partially corroded. The end of the barrel and the top of the cap are also worn on the edges as shown in the photographs. The pen works well.

Payment Policy: Paying via Credit Card or PayPal are the only methods allowed for addresses outside the United States. Customers from the United States also have the option of sending a check, money order or cashier's check. Payment method is selected during checkout.

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 of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.

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.
