Hello All,

 

I have recently come across this fabulous looking fountain pen. However i am not having much luck in researching its history / identifying / valuing this pen. This seems to be a early / rare Conklin. My trail so far: The pen is stamped The Crescent Pen, but after looking at Conklin Crescent Pens on Google and Ebay this didn't seem right. Spotted a similar finish on a All American reptilian however there is no plunger. So this has pushed me down the endura route, but now I'm back the the start scratching my head.

 

Can anyone help!!??

 

I am looking to sell this pen on in the near future, so your community wealth of knowledge would be most helpful and i would be most grateful.

 

Many Thanks 

 

:rolleyes:

Its not an Endura. Likely Chicago period, but does the nib say 'made in England'? I can't make out the rest. It has an interesting finish, not one I've seen before. Its a lever filler.

Indeed it says made in England. Ritewell nib, so has probably been replaced at some point.
