This pen looks good and works perfectly despite suffering more abuse than it should. A few cosmetic flaws are worth overlooking for a pen with such nice transparency and a lovely, soft Feather Touch 5 nib. This pen writes bigger than it is.

The filler knob is covered in bite marks. I have smoothed the high spots as much as possible without removing to original grooves. Someone tried to scratch out the 875 price code below the barrel imprint. A small flat spot remains. There are a few light scratches and marks here and there on the cap and barrel. Too much celluloid must be removed to get rid of all these flaws. And that leaves the pen looking worse - too smooth with obvious signs of too much polishing.

Despite the negatives, the barrel clarity is quite good with a red tint. The original, celluloid covered filler rod is in perfect condition. The nib is everything one could wish from a Feather Touch 5. Nice line variation with normal writing pressure. The pen is small but the cap posts gently to provide ample length for even large hands with high grips - like mine.
