Condition
The pen body and cap are glossy and smooth with no cracks, marks, dents, dings, scratches or faults. The nib is beautiful and it writes a nice, wet line. My caliper says the nib tip is ~0.5 mm but see the photo for a writing sample on Rhodia grid paper.

Typical for these silver furnished Balances there is some minor pitting and plating loss on the clip though you need a loop to see most of it. The barrel is ambered but retains plenty of clarity to see the ink level and the filling mechanism.

The steel plunger rod is in excellent condition. I've replaced the plunger gasket and packing unit using the method, tools and materials used and recommended by the most respected Vacuum fill repair professionals.
