Type  Fountain pen 

Product Name  Super 100, as written on the barrel.

Manufacturer and Year  Pilot, Japan -- 1950s, this is around when the "Super" models came out.

Length  5-1/8"

Filling System  This filling system has a few names but the two main ones are "knob filler" and "quarter turn." It is the filling system Pilot used between the lever filling and the aerometric/accordion filling systems. It has been tested and it's working well. You push down on the lever at the top of the filling system to compress an internal sac and fill accordingly.

Color  Black body and gold plated cap.

Nib   Extra Fine 14k nib. It is marked, "Pilot 14k." and is springy. The size is not marked, but it's between an extra fine and a fine. The springiness of the nib is enough to give you line variation between EF - M. See writing sample below.

Condition  Superior condition, in vintage Pilot leather case. Barrel and cap are both shiny, with no significant marks on them. No cracks or chips. The imprint on the barrel is slightly faded, but still quite readable.

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.
