[SOLD]Mabie Todd Blackbird $115
[SOLD]Mabie Todd & Co. Blackbird BB 2/60
This MT&Co Blackbird is in excellent condition with very dark hard rubber, and excellent chasing. Imprints are in excellent condition and are deep and crisp. The "Blackbird" imprint on the cap are in very good condition. The butt end imprint Reads BB 2/60. All imprints easily legible. Threads are perfect, and cap operates smoothly. The nib is original and writes from F-BB, and I would consider this a Superflex nib. Writes wet, smooth, and shades beautifully. A very nice specimen for the collector or a superb user. All parts original, and fitted with a new sac ready for a new home. Please check pics for a better description. Writing sample is done on .5cm dotted HP 24lb laserjet paper. Measurements are: 13.4cm capped, 16.2cm posted, and 12.4cm unposted. A very good size pen for almost all hands. These blackbirds are a bit bigger than the other Blackbirds.
