I stopped at a local store today and found a couple used pens for sale. I was told that the owner of the store (who was not present) had serviced all of the pens that are for sale and that they all work. Since I am so new to this, I didn't even know what to look for or ask. They did let me dip the nibs in some ink and write a couple words with it. The Mabie Todd has a flexible stub nib. I couldn't read the information on the nib without a loop. But can anyone tell me anything about this pen? They had a price tag on it for $100. And the engraving said Patent Jan19 1915. They let me take this photo of it. And of course, I can go back with my loop to get a better look. It seemed to write okay and had a fairly flexible nib. The other was a Waterman 52V? Again, I could not read the engraving on the pen or nib without a loop, but I did take a photo? The Waterman nib was quite fine and very flexible. They were asking $100 for this pen also. I plan on going back. How are these prices if the pens are in good working condition, and the nibs in good shape? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.
I saw this pen at a local store. The pen has been serviced and works fine. A flexible stub nib. They are asking $100 for the pen. Can anyone give me any info on this pen from my photo? Is that a fair price? Any ideas when it may have been made? Mabie Todd Patent Jan19 1915. I didn't have a loop with me, and I couldn't read any of the engraving on the nib. Thanks.
Hi, I'm waiting for a about 100 years (?) old Mabie Todd Swan eyedropper from Ireland. I found the nib fascinating... Will it be fine, much flex? My pen doesn't have an overfeed, is it missing here?
