This is a follow up to an April 2018 thread which had a great discussion, but was not labeled well and did not feature all the colors. I have now collected all six colors of the Moire ring top pens, which seemed worth a post to summarize these pens. I also have two slightly larger moire geometric pens posted here. Ads place these along with the 1920s colored pens (142 series), and they have the classic 1920s flat top style. The ends of the barrels are stamped (but not always as usual). Only my Coral pen is not stamped. N/92 = Nile Green F/92 = fuchsia C/92 = coral B/92 = blue M/92 = Ivory (my pen below has a green discoloration. The coral pen shows the ivory color better) L/92 = Lavender I have not seen ads with the M/92 color, so I will continue the name used by Moak. The pens are about 3 7/8 inches capped (give or take). They post to a usable size. Swan #2 nibs were found in all my examples. The Ivory and Coral are mirror image color patterned The blue band on the fuchsia is a lapis style blue with white fleck. The lavender seems prone to fading to gray (I showed the good side of my pen). The Ivory seems prone to discoloration or staining based on the dark staining of the pen in the Moak book, and the green tint on my pen (which had other green stains on the outside that I sanded off).
