[SOLD]Swan Snakeskin SM100/85 $190

[SOLD]Swan Snakeskin SM100/85

These rare and beautiful Snakeskins made by Swan are quite striking if you've never seen one in person. The pattern is amazing. This one is in the Purple Snakeskin. Imprints are excellent on the barrel. Near the end of the barrel has the model imprint of "SM100/85." Cap has Swan motif on the jewel. The lever is black hard rubber which shows a hint of oxidation(still dark but not pitch black). Clip has some plating loss, but has tension and functions fine. There are no cracks, chips, scratches, or any major damage. However, there is a black dot on the body which looks almost like a tiny burn mark. Threads are excellent. The nib is the original Swan #1 14k Superflex+ nib. Almost a wet noodle, but not quite. It definitely has the flexibility like a wet noodle, but a wet noodle would be softer. This wonderful pen writes smoothly, and with flexibility from F/M-BBB. Fitted with a 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: 12.5cm capped, 15.5cm posted, and 11.5cm unposted.

Asking price is $190 shipped within CONUS via Priority with tracking. USA buyers preferred. International buyers please PM or Email for shipping rates.
