Onoto 6200 plunger filler pen in black chased hard rubber with two 18ct barrel bands and gold filled clip.
The barrel imprint is crisp and still has the white infill: “ONOTO THE PEN. DE LA RUE & Co LONDON”
The model number “6200 is imprinted on the plunger knob. It is very long pen, 15.3cm closed and over 19cm when the cap is posted. But light and well balanced.
The Onoto 6200 appears in the catalogue for 1926 and at least through the 1928 catalogues. It is in the 1920s range of Onoto pens described as “streamlined” and was an upgrade on the standard 6000 model, having a larger No. 4 nib (vs No. 3) and a clip as standard.  The 6200 was priced at 21/- (21 shillings), against 17/6 (17 shillings and 6 pence) for the 6000. The clip can be removed: the cap unscrews above the clip ring to allow the clip to be added and removed.
This pen has a further upgrade, two 18ct (marked) wide barrel bands. The upper band has an inscription for a presentation to :W Bro. G Thornhill From His Initiates of The Queenswood Lodge No. 4718 1928-29”. The pen was presented by Freemasons’ initiated to the Lodge. The Lodge was constituted in 1925 and still meets at the Freemason’s Hall in Great Queens Street, London, a most impressive meeting place.  
The long number 4 De la Rue Onoto nib is a fine point with flex and a lovely soft writer. 
This is a very elegant pen and a lovely pen to write with.
Condition:  excellent, the BCHR chasing is crisp and the colour shows no fading at all. The barrel imprint is crisp and still has most of the white infill. The clip is in very good condition with just some brassing on the ball. The pen has been serviced and fills and writes well.
