Condition Very nice condition with no cracks, chips, dents, or dings. The main flaw is the worn condition of the trim. This is a small, shiny, beautifully colored pen. The barrel has marks caused by the cap lip and moderate scratching. The cap also has moderate scratching. The lever has plating wear and some pitting. The single thin cap band has plating wear. The short clip with a cut-out pattern at the top and its mount have plating wear and some dots of pitting all over. The clip is a tad off-center. The imprints are clear.
