  1. I've seen something this morning that puts me in a campaigning mood. One butcher by the name of Womble1962 is apparently stripping gold nibs from fountain pens, (and doubtless anything else he/ she can get at) and selling the remains " for parts or repair" I think that this heathen, heid banging philistine, who sells the purist dross, should be bombarded with messages. See: http://www.ebay.fr/sch/m.html?item=351349542960&ul_ref=http%253A%252F%252Frover.ebay.com%253A80%252Frover%252F0%252Fe11010.m2368.l3160%252F7%253Feuid%253D71a9939dc1a243c59475241194a55afa%2526loc%253Dhttp%25253A%25252F
  2. Have a look at this picture: it shows the barrel stamp of a very nice Swan 1060 I have up for sale on eBay at present. I suspect that the curious additional letters are a production error so I suppose this pen must be judged a quality control failure - rare I should say at Mabie Todd before the war. It can be seen that the misplaced letters are made with the factory stamps. Any views on this curiosity? Cob
  3. I could use some help. I'm having difficulty IDing a Mabie Todd NY, flat top, wide cap band, lever fill. No model # on barrel end. Nib has heart breather, "SWAN 14ct Mabie Todd & Co made in USA" barrel has a light imprint. SWAN Self Fill Pen, MABIE TODD& Co NEW YORK Pats Jan 23.34 May 23.13 Pat. P3" 4.75" capped 4" uncapped. Thanks in advance for your help.
  4. I often see Mabie Todd nibs with a letter stamped on the nib below the size number. The most common examples seem to be D, G and H. Is it known what these letters designate? Examples: http://i.imgur.com/IzQiBvd.jpg http://i.imgur.com/VkefZtW.jpg http://i.imgur.com/8g0UJCD.jpg
  5. Hello all I am new to the forums. I have an antique Mabie Todd dip pen and would like to find other nibs that fit the pen. The Mabie Todd nib that is currently in the pen is expensive and difficult to find. I would like to write with the pen a lot but all the nibs I have don't fit this pen. I recall seeing another post on the forums discussing nib and holder matching. The posted stated that Victorian dip pens had smaller nibs. If anyone could suggest a nib that would fit the pen I'd really appreciate it. I have attached a picture of the pen/nib you should be able to see the nib if you zoom in.
  6. I was given a rather lovely Swan pen yesterday, of a sort that (in my limited experience) I haven't seen before. So I would very much like to know more about it. This is a long post, but I'm putting as much detail in as I can to increase the chances that someone will be able to help. I didn't find anything on FPN that might help - but if I've missed something, please just point me in the right direction. It looks like a good quality piece, and there are no leaks or cracks. An overnight soak of the nib revealed lots of gunk, and it needs further cleaning, but it is unblocked enough that water
  7. I know that the BHR has faded to a horrid colour on the cap, but it does have the 1920 bling feature of an 18ct gold band on the cap! Never mind all that nonsense: it is fitted with the lovely Mabie Todd New York No 2 stub, a little bent and writes like a dream. Funnily I just sold my first No 2 Safety Screw Cap a week ago! They are lovely pens. Cob
  8. I know a little about the Mabie Todd brand, but haven't been able to find a single go-to page for information on their models over the years, and am wondering where this one fits in. I just cleaned it up and put a new sac in it, and it's a pretty nice little pen except for a pronounced tendency to nib creep. Might be better with a different ink (I'm using Namiki Blue), but never mind that now. Here's what it looks like. http://i614.photobucket.com/albums/tt221/mapn/Pens/MTS37_zps020e6de6.jpg http://i614.photobucket.com/albums/tt221/mapn/Pens/MTS41_zps04d256a4.jpg On the flat end of th
  9. I have been very fortunate to acquire a very nice Swan SM1/57. Apart from its prettiness, it has a most interesting nib which I assume is quite unusual: it is a broad oblique italic. Writing with one of these is quite discipline-inducing! Cob
  10. A thorny one this - and probably a hardy perenniel for all I know. Does anyone have Stephen Hull's WES piece concerning Mabiie Todd's colour codes? I have done a search without any success. I know a few of them, but am a bit puzzled with a recent purchase. It is a Calligraph stamped 3250. Now 50 was always green (or at least I thought so) until this one arrived; it is brown. For example, I have a late 1920s/early 1930s 230/50; this is jade! 20 was dark blue, 30 was grey, 60 is black, 70 is light blue. A few more: 52 early is Lapis, later blue/black marble, 42 is blue marble, 45 grey
  11. I'm probably going to get a replacement nib for my Mabie Todd pen. It has a cracked Eternal nib, but writes wonderfully smooth. So, how are the regular nibs in comparison? How is the writing experience?
  12. Hi, There is a long hairline crack in one of my eyedropper pen. How to repair it? Though I do not use this pen very often is it possible to have a silicon grease coating at the inner surface before filling, or need to have some glue? With Regards Tapan
  13. Dear All, I have the following two pens that I am trying to get into working condition. The first is marked "Swan" self-filler Mabie Todd 7 Co. Ltd. Made in England on the barrel, with S-F 210 C at its base and SF2 on the part the nib sits in. The nib is marked Swan 2 14Ct Mabie Todd Co. Ltd The second, which appears to have an italic nib is marked "Swan" self-filling pen Mabie Todd and Co. Ltd. Made in England on the barrel, with 2 S. F-MBRD at its base and also SF2 on the part the nib sits in, while the nib itself says Mabie Todd and Co. N.Y. 2 Neither has a sac and one is

    Need Mabie Todd Nib

    I have a Mabie Todd Swan pen model #3150 that needs a nib. The pen itself is ca. 125mm or 5 inches capped. 1. What model number Swan nib am I looking for? 2. Do any members know where I might find a nib to fit this pen? -Neil Anderson

    Mabie Todd Swan 1500

    This dropped through the letterbox an hour ago. I haven't had much time to play with it, but I couldn't wait to show it to you all. Here she is: a BCHR Mabie Todd Swan 1500 eyedropper, with a pretty gold-filled band. Big thanks to Deb from Goodwriters, who, as always, was an absolute joy to deal with. The cap is friction fit and posts very comfortably - the lack of a clip is actually something I always rather like in a pen (1500s with after-market clips are quite common, and I am pleased to have found a pen without one), but your preference may differ! Uncapped: Of course, the re
  16. Hello, I am looking to purchase a Mabie Todd Swan Eternal with a No 8 Nib. Information on this pen seems to be quite scarce. I would be grateful if informed members of the forum could shed some light on the best place to look for it and pricing etc. Thanks. Regards
