Condition Excellent condition for this colorful, shiny pen that is large and impressive. The color is excellent with no fading and showing pearlization. The barrel has marks caused by the cap lip, one very long scratch starting near the cap lip and moderate scratching near the end of the barrel with a couple of long scratches there, too. The lever has long, thin scratches. There are tool marks on the seciton. This color is more or less impossible to find without cap lip cracks. The cap has a crack on the lip which follows the seam of the material above it on the cap (the seam undoubtedly represents a weak area). Most of the cap has moderate small scratches. The top of the cap has some vein-y looking scratches. The cap band has microscratching; it is nice and golden. The clip has plating wear around the edge of the flat ball end. There is a tiny ping just above that on the clip face. The white dot looks great. The pen is personalized on the barrel, "Y T H". The imprints are clear.
