Additional Information
I bought this pen because it came with box (with name and the date 14/12/15 on it), eyedropper and two WWI medals (with same name on it). So it seems the pen was used by a private from Leicester in the Gloucestershire Regiment during WWI. The medals are the War and the Victory medal aka "Mutt and Jeff". AFAIK these are the most basic medals one could get. Apparently a pocket Swan doesn't make a hero.

First: tahnk You all for this great topic. :wub:

@Cepasaccus

I have almost the same Mabie, Todd & Co. Ltd. England Swan Self-Filler. Almost, because it has nib 1. Do you think it is OK, or should be 2, and this mine is swapped? And one more question: is there any possibility to determine year of production?
