[SOLD]Swan SM2/60 Wet Noodle $165
[SOLD]Swan SM2/60 Wet Noodle
These Swan SM2/60(Swan Minor #2) are workhorse pens. I was very lucky to come by a wet noodle. Like the infamous Waterman 52 that are writing champs these pens are hardy lever fillers that keep on giving. This one has excellent gold trim with no wear at all except a little bit of wear to the Swan Motif on the top of the cap. I've seen more detailed Swan Motifs, but this one definitely isn't bad as you can easily make out the Swan. Imprints are superb with just a hint of wear to the bottom right by the "England" in the Made in England portion. Model imprint is legible although slightly faded. The barrel has a engine turned chasing design although it is pretty faint on this specimen. The nib is where this thing shines! A superbly flexible 14k gold wet noodle that writes from a wet Fine-BBBB! Has a half circle breather hole with the Swan logo on the nib. The hard rubber section is a bit browned, and I can re-blacken it free of charge if the buyer wants me to. Threads are excellent. Pen has no cracks, chips, or bite marks. A couple of light discreet scratches are present, but as you can see from the pictures they are not noticeable. Has 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 for the pen are: 13.5cm capped, 16.8cm posted, and 12.6cm unposted.
