[SOLD]Swan Snakeskin SM 205/83 $215

[SOLD]Swan Blue Snakeskin SM 205/83

This highly sought after and collectible Swan Minor 205/83 is in a very rare Blue Snakeskin pattern. The pen itself is in excellent - near mint condition. With very little signs of wear this is quite a writing instrument. There are no chips, or cracks. Gold trim on the clip and cap band are very shiny with great luster. Imprints are superb throughout. The barrel imprints are very deep and crisp. The model imprint is deep and crisp. Although I had a bit of a hard time capturing it in the pics, it is there and they are very legible to the naked eye. The nib is Swan's original 14ct #2 nib that is a Superflex bordering Wet Noodle, and writes from a F/M - Double Broad+. Please check writing sample to see the huge line variation. This pen certainly outclasses all my previous Swan Snakeskins with this delightful nib. New sac, and 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: 12.5cm capped, 15.2cm posted, and 11.6cm unposted.

Asking price is $215 shipped within CONUS via Priority with tracking. USA buyers preferred. International buyers please PM or Email for shipping rates.
