[SOLD]Swan Blackbird Double Bands w/Box
Today I have on offer a Swan Blackbird with double gold plated bands on the barrel. This is the clipless model, but has a aftermarket Swan gold plated clip. The clip can slide off/on the cap, so it is NOT seized onto the cap. The gold trim on this pen is good with some wear to the plating, but still looks good and shiny. I believe the box had a paper hinge on one side, but is now torn, so it doesn't stay together on its own. It is still structurally sound, and would make a great box to display the pen. Imprints are superb on this one. Very crisp and deep. Threads are excellent, and the cap screws on/off smoothly and snug. Section has Blackbird imprinted, but the feed is most likely a replacement since it has Swan imprinted instead of Blackbird. Nib is original Blackbird 14k gold nib which is very flexible. Writes from a F/M-BB+. Very nice line variation, and a very smooth writer. There are no chips or cracks with this pen, however, there is a small section on the barrel which does show some scratches under the area of the imprints. I couldn't capture it in the pictures. The pen overall is in very good condition for its age, and would make an excellent pen in any rotation. 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: 14cm capped, 16.7cm posted, and 12.5cm unposted.
