Swan identification request


Recommended Posts

Here is a small self-filling Swan with a flexible #2 nib.  I know little else about this pen and would appreciate any information (model, manufacture date, etc).

This would likely be from the 1920s.  Beautiful mottled hard rubber pen, and with a hard rubber lever, which is particular to Mabie Todd.  I believe, but could be mistaken, that the rubber lever models were all Swan SM (Swan Minor), and for a size 2, it is SM2.  There would be other numbers indicating the color, short length, and trim, but I can't come up with these off the top of my head.

It is a beautiful pen and that nib is vey promising pen. Seems to be a very fine medium flex nib.

It shows the shape and what quality it has in writing. Need to have more work get into life.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
