  1. Hi, this is my finest stub and my oldest pen. A pre-1907 Mabie Todd & Bard Swan 3003 eyedropper with "short nib, fine" as it was called those times. And when they said fine, a very fine nib was meant: This one gives 0.28 to 0.30mm lines vertically and 0.21mm horizontally on paper. Best wishes Jens
  2. Sharing some photographs of a 1902 Mabie Todd & Bard silver eyedropper with the ink flow control valve. Engraving on the barrel: The Swan Pen PAT. FEB 8 81. FEB 21.82. MAR 6.88 Mabie Todd & Bard New York Sterling Albert S Waller February 1902 In recognition of Faithful Service Mabie Todd & Bard As per the book, of Steve Hull, the ink control valve is illustrated below. I'm not sure that it is more of a marketing claim than a precision ink flow control! Anyone had good experience of using this ink control stopper? NB. The BCHR slip cap is not original, i'm sure looking at advertising of the time it would have been silver overlay. Regards. Kevin
  3. Hi guys, I just got myself a beautiful near-mint Mabie Todd & Bard Swan, which the internet informs me means it was manufactured somewhere between the last patent date on the barrel, 1895, and Mabie Todd's name change in 1907. This makes it the oldest pen in my collection by far, and I wasn't sure if the composition of ebonite was different in the "olden days" compared to somewhat later ebonite pens like most vintage Watermans. Since it's an eyedropper, I'd like to know what's safe to use to clean it out thoroughly whilst keeping its condition as good as when I bought it.
