Type  Vintage fountain pen in excellent working condition

Product Name  Unknown

Manufacturer and Year  Unknown

Length  5-3/8"

Filling System  Coin filler - working perfectly with a new sac, guaranteed for one year. (It works like a lever filler, but instead of using the lever to depress the ink sac, you use a coin and press it in the slot when the nib is in ink). Coin not included!

Color  Black chased hard rubber. 

Nib  FLEXIBLE FINE Warranted 14k #4 nib. It may have been considered a medium based on the paper label. It's fairly smooth, with tipping still remaining. Very flexible, with nice line variation. It goes from a fine line to a broad or double broad without very much pressure. Close to full flex. See writing sample below.

Condition  Excellent condition. There are a few light scratches on the pen and some hand wear. The color is really beautiful, though there is some fading of the black hard rubber on one side of the cap. The clip shows some plating wear. The pressure bar also shows wear, from being depressed with coins. No cracks or chips, and the chasing is fairly crisp. There is a paper label on the end of the barrel that says "$1 Safety Med.". Restored and working well.

Returns Policy: No questions asked, money back guarantee. If you have a problem with an item, we will replace/repair it, or refund your money, the choice is up to you. If you decide you don't like the nib after you've inked a new pen, we'll refund 75%. (There will be no such charge for a pen that is pre-owned, provided you return it in the condition received.)

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.
