[SOLD]Onoto De La Rue Vacuum Self Filler $140

[SOLD]Onoto De La Rue Vacuum Self Filler

This pen has even oxidation, and is still pretty dark. The clip is a removeable aftermarket clip which is actually made by Swan, but all the info is on the inside of the clip and goes nicely with this pen. The vacuum plunger mechanism has been recently overhauled with new seals and the filling action is superb. It draws in a ton of ink. The nib is a Onoto 14k 3ST nib which probably is the code for Stub? Either way it has a stub like tip that has a very shallow obliqueness to it. Writes a M/B when unflexed, and has springiness/semi-flex qualities that will go up to BB when given a little pressure. I measured the stub with my calipers which show 1.0mm. Very smooth writer that is a joy to write with because of the springiness! I saw this exact same pen recently sell on Ebay for $258+shipping, and the filling mechanism didn't even work and needed new seals! The pen doesn't post well since the cap sits on the butt end loosely, but I doubt you would need to post it since it is a lengthy pen. Please check pics for a better description. Writing sample is done on .5cm light grid print on HP 24lb laserjet paper. Measurements are: 15cm capped, 18cm posted, and 14.6cm unposted.

Asking price is $140 shipped within CONUS via Priority with tracking. USA buyers preferred. International buyers please PM or Email for shipping rates.
