Product Name  Crest, the barrel is unlabeled, but it would have cost $15.00 in the 1940s.

Color  Black body, and a gold filled cap. The cap is 1/10th 14k gold and has a simple lined pattern.

Nib  FINE. Two tone 14k Triumph nib. The silver color is platinum.

Condition  Excellent + condition. Some microscratching and handwear, but overall quite lovely. The cap has one tiny dent at the very top, and some brassing on the ball end of the clip, but beyond that is in great shape. Barrel clarity is fantastic. Imprint is clear. The pen is fully restored and working well.

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 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.
