[SOLD]Pelikan 400nn Green Striated $185
[SOLD]Pelikan 400nn Green Striated
A beautiful vintage Pelikan 400nn Green Striated from the 1950's. This one sports a Extra Fine nib, but writes between a XF and Fine. Has a nice springy/flexy nib for beautiful line variation. Writes from a XF/F-BB+. The tip has a tiny slight obliqueness from it. Most likely due to being owned by a right hander. This will work great for righties, or if a lefty wants I can grind it out to be a neutral point. The nib unit unscrews to switch with other Pelikan nib units of similar size. The gold trim is good, but has a little bit of wear on the edges. Piston is very smooth, has a new seal, and well lubed to have a lasting smoothness for a long time. Cap top Pelikan logo is very good. There is no damage to the pen what so ever. No chips, cracks, bite marks, or gouges. Superb transparency to see ink level. Please check pics for a better description. Writing sample is done on .5cm grid 90 gsm Clairefontaine paper. Measurements: 13cm capped, 14.9cm posted, and 12.4cm unposted.
