[SOLD]Mabie Todd Blackbird with Box
Excellent condition pen with superb details. The chasing or engine turned pattern is very detailed. The pen has some minor wear, but hardly noticeable. Only damage I feel worth mentioning is a scratch on the cap and a thin hairline that seems stable, and doesn't affect the caps function. Color is very dark, the darkest black I've had my hands on with these type of Blackbirds. The box is in very good-excellent condition. Coloring is great, and is structurally in very good shape. The aftermarket clip is very shiny and functions very well. Imprints are excellent, very deep and crisp. Imprints of "Blackbird" on cap is very deep and crisp. Unmonogrammed on the open section for personalizing. Feed is imprint Blackbird. Threads are perfect. Nib is marked "Mabie Todd" and is 14k. A full flex that writes from XF-BB. Splendid writer that will make a nice collector piece. New sac, and ready for a new home. Please check pics for a better description. Writing sample is done on .5cm light grid print on HP 24lb laserjet paper. Measurements are: 13.5cm capped, 16.5cm posted, and 12.5cm unposted. Big pen especially for vintage standards.
