[SOLD]Conway Stewart 388 Blue Marble $105
[SOLD]Conway Stewart 388 Blue Marble
The finish on this pen is in excellent condition. Gold trim all around is superb showing little to no wear. The clip has a hint of wear, but it actually looks better in person than the pictures make it out to be. Cap bands are near perfect with one small nick on one of the bands. Imprints are not as crisp as I would like but legible to the naked eye. The hard rubber cap top is nice and black showing no oxidation. Lever works perfectly and has deep "CS" logo. The nib is quite special as it is a stock Broad stub. On the horizontal strokes it writes a Fine, and on the downstrokes it writes a Broad. It also has a little bit of spring to it giving a luxurious soft feel that gives your writing some character. The nib does have a tiny tiny krink around the breather hole, but does not affect function or the longevity of the nib. For those that love stub nibs this is a gem to write with. The blue marble finish is a stunner, and there are no cracks, chips, or bite marks. The nice glossy surface means this pen was hardly used, and was kept in storage most of its life. 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: 12.5cm capped, 15.8cm posted, and 11.7cm unposted.
