    That is one of the best reviews I have ever read of a pen (in terms of the production of the review, that is). I learned about about that pen and others of that period. Thanks so much for it.

    Interesting review. Particularly enjoyed the details and the assistance in understanding British monetary system.

    Out of curiosity, any idea the value, in USD of the time and today, of the Pound Sterling?

    Thank you for a very nice review.

    According to the University of Wyoming in 1929 1 pound was worth US$6.11. So one shilling was equivalent to 50 cents.

    That pen looks very appealing to me as It has the usual "vintage classic pen" look of designer of the time. Very nine review too.
