Small size fountain pen by Moore with the famous "Non-Leakable" safety pen design. Based off of the imprints, we are calling the pen a Non-Leakable 250 Safety. It has a flexible extra fine nib with strong hairlines. It is black chased hard rubber and has a gold filled ring top system. The pen is recently restored and looks great. Excellent + condition.

Type  Early safety-fill fountain pen

Product Name Non-Leakable 250 Safety. Non-Leakable is printed on the middle of the barrel and 2.50 is printed at the end of it.

Manufacturer and Year  The Moore Co., made in USA -- probably 1920s. The pen was produced from the late 1980s on for around 30 years but around 1917 changed the company name from American Pen Co. to Moore. 

Length  4-3/4"

Filling System  This is a variation on the safety pen. To fill you unscrew the cap and fill the pen reservoir like an eyedropper, then push the bottom part of the barrel towards the section to extend the nib. It is slide based. This "Non-Leakable" system includes a pin in the cap to push the nib down if the user forgets to retract the nib before attaching the cap, but that still risks nib damage so please do your best to remember to slide the nib back into the barrel before capping. The system has been disassembled, restored, and tested. It is working well.

Color  Black chased hard rubber with a checkerboard design. It also has a gold filled ring top ornament with draping band at the edge.

Nib  FLEXIBLE EXTRA FINE nib. It has an American Pen Co. imprint which may seem mismatched at first, but is the original name of the Moore Co. The nib has excellent hairlines and offers very nice line variation. Please see the writing sample below.

Condition  Excellent + condition. It really looks great with just about perfect chasing and very intact plating. There is some wear on the cap and barrel imprints and some bite marks on the end of the barrel. The gold filled ring top decoration has a few dings and small dents. The hard rubber is very black.
