This is an interesting thing. It's black ebonite with gorgeous vermilion streaks. I know nothing of it's age or story. The nib is a replacement marked Redipoint, St. Paul, 2. That might be sad except that it's an amazing flexible nib. Someone scratched out a name that was above the manufacturer's imprint. I've polished it well enough that there is little evidence remaining - almost impossible to photograph.
The top of the cap unscrews to reveal an eraser. Under the eraser is a reservoir for spare graphite sticks. The pencil mechanism works perfectly and has one stick of graphite.
There is plating loss on the clip ball and the edges of the lever and cap bands. The pen is highly polished, feels smooth and soft in hand and writes beautifully.
