Condition Very nice condition for this beautifully colored pen and pencil set that have a classic design. The coloration on the pen has fading on the barrel and an area of the cap. The pencil coloring is superior -- this is the original coloring. The fountain pen has marks caused by the cap lip and moderate scratching. The cap has one thin crack in the cap lip that goes up to the cap band, and some hairlines along the cap lip that look like they could become cracks if the pen cap was posted. The cap band has lots of microscratching just under the clip. The clip has plating wear on the ball but otherwise looks excellent. The white dot is clean. The mechanical pencil has very light scratching and plating wear on the ball of the cliip. It is otherwise in excellent + condition. The imprints on both pieces are clear.
