This model was called the New Eversharp when it came out, abandoning the eminent 'slipper cap'.
Put into the market during the twilight of Eversharp, this pen didn't win much attention as the Skylines did.
But this doesn't mean it writes badly.
I would say it's a very modern design at the time of 1950s. It still looks very fashionable now. The drawback of this design is inside the cap. The slipper cap of the previous models fixed the inner cap inside. The new symmetrical cap isn't able to fix its inner cap properly. The inner cap is slightly movable inside the metal shell.
Its a lever filler. The lever is smoothly set in the barrel.
The gold nib has some flex, but not a lot. Writes very comfortably with some soft resistance, so that the writing doesn't fly too fast.
This NOS cost me 75 bucks, a quite friendly price.
