Dear all,
I have the good fortune of a Swan 242 1/2 50 in my collection. My pen came with its original guarantee slip (fun for a 100 years on), and in a presentation box. However, as far as I can see in the advertising, Mabie Todd didnt make presentation boxes for single pens (only pens with pencils) for this model and at this time? I can only assume the branded, cardboard box the pen came was discarded at some point and the guarantee and pen itself transposed. Although it seems strange that someone went to such effort to conserve the form, unfilled in and redundant?
Aside - Im intrigued to know what the packaging options were for this pen. Perhaps one day Ill cross paths with something period and correct in which to make this lovely jade example at home!
Best.

The box and materials look very modern to me. Certainly not 80 years old.
