Condition Very nice condition for this shiny tapered pen, in a classic color and design combination. The color between the cap and barrel is inconsistent -- the barrel has darkened, the known and common result of a chemical reaction between the material and gasses emitted by the sac. The cap and barrel have light to moderate scratching. The barrel has marks caused by the cap lip and the more moderate scratching near the end. The cap band has a small dot of plating wear on the lower edge. The clip has a bit of plating wear on the ball. The white dot is perfect. The imprints are clear.
