Type  Crescent filling vintage fountain pen, restored and working well.

Product Name  Crescent 40 as identified by the imprint at the end of the barrel. 4 is for nib size; 0 means no bands.

Manufacturer and Year  Conklin, made in Toledo, Ohio -- 1920s.

Length  Just over 5-5/16 inches.

Filling System  Crescent filler. We've restored it with a new sac and its working very well.

Color  Black chased hard rubber (BCHR) with a gold filled crescent.

Nib   FLEXIBLE  FINE Conklin Toledo #4 nib is smooth with nice tipping material. It is almost fully flexible with strong line variation. Please see the writing sample below.

Condition  Excellent condition. The imprints are perfect and the chasing is present visually but the hard rubber is smooth. It has some discoloration, more on the cap than on the barrel. The end of the barrel has a few bite marks. The locking mechanism for the crescent spins well. The cap originally had a clip but it has been removed. As a result there is a larger hole in the cap than the breather holes. We photographed it. The pen ships in a vintage Conklin box, which has a lid that has become detached (it was just attached via the silk fabric). We've restored the pen and it's working very 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.
