A Swan safety pen is filled with an eyedropper. Unscrew the section as per your picture and fill the barrel.

Can you show a picture of the barrel imprint?

Is there a Swan imprint on the feed or on the section as well?

Any numbers on t he barrel anywhere?

There are no imprints on the feed or section & there are no numbers at all on the barrel. I have attached another photo to my original ad as I have not been able to add a photo in my reply to you. Thanks for your interest.

Thanks pensaro!

I am a huge Swan fan, and I am totally unfamiliar with this pen.

Thank you so much for sharing it.

The gold tone Cap has a Swan emblem on the Clip but no other imprints. It is almost identical to the Cap on the Biro Magnum.

Yes, Swan did produce some pens with this cap; I had a 3260 with the golden cap and I did once bid on a safety pen like yours. Safety pens were often produced (MacNiven & Cameron were well-known for this) for use in the colonies where rubber sacs were apt to be very short lived.

Interesting, thank you. On checking through some MTC bits & pieces I have found another, similar not the same,

lined-gold tone cap.
