Can Anyone Help Me With This Mabie Todd?

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.

I think $100 is a bargain as long as everything is right, attractive color and a nice early model.

 

The nib looks like it needs setting to my eyes. If it is not a Mabie Todd nib, and that is a possibility, personally I would walk away

 

MTs are usually well marked, especially at the end of the barrel.

Thanks for the info. I am going to take my loop and drive to the store to see what I can read on the nib and the pen. That should help me with my decision.

Did it have a lever or is it eyedropper filled? Main issue I would make sure is that the nib is an original Mabie Todd. For $100 I probably would bite, but would try to offer less and meet in the middle.

It's hard to tell from the photo, but I think the pen may have had a cap ring (gold colored) now missing.

You might be able to tell with a close look.

 

The end of the barrel should have a number (may be hard to see). Might tell more.

Photos of nib, and feed would be useful.
