[SOLD]Conklin Crescent Filler BCHR $170
[SOLD]Conklin Crescent Filler Black Chased Hard Rubber
Excellent condition with jet black hard rubber, and amazing details of chasing! Hard rubber has not been re-blackened! Comes with its original box which is in good shape. Unsure of the model, but it is a nice big flat top. The imprint is strong and easily legible with the naked eye. Clip has patent date of 1918, and functions perfectly with only a hint of wear on the bottom of the clip. Filler has been overhauled and works well, but the original J-Bar was wrecked. I've used another straight bar instead of a J-Bar. It still fills, but now relies on the sac for the Crescent to rebound. It'll rebound 9/10 times, and I have left it as is since it functions just fine. A replacement J-Bar is about will fix this if is a quirk for you. The original Conklin 14k gold #2 nib with Crescent breather hole is very flexible and writes like a champ! Very smooth writer, and flexes from XF/F to BBB exhibiting beautiful shading behavior when using a shading ink. There is a tiny hairline on the cap lip which has been stabilized. Sorry it doesn't show up on the pictures(I tried). Pen was restored, filled, writing sample done, and thoroughly cleaned awaiting its new owner. Please check pics for a better description. Writing sample is done on .5cm grid 90 gsm Clairefontaine paper. Measurements: 13.5cm capped, 17cm posted, and 12.3cm unposted.
