    How about this beautiful Moore?



    Notice the black top on the cap. I just love the marble pattern on this celluloid. It is similar to Conklin's Black and Bronze.

    Despite this pen being a big vintage pen (5-1/4 inches capped with girthy barrel), I have one with similar styling that is bigger.

    Oh, no, not twins, just in the same family, and you are my big brother: this one is 4-7/8". I don't know if there is a faint stamp on the bottom of your barrel, mine reads "83".

    The big one. I mean BIG.



    Notice the pale jade-like celluloid finial on the top? Not easy to find, especially the one that has no cracks or chips.

    I had this 5.5 inches capped, girthy-barreled dude for a while but was waiting for a donor pen to replace the missing lever (and pressure bar inside). The replacement has to also be a Moore from around the same time period, The shape of the lever has to match not only the trough, but it also has to have the same exact placement of holes for the ring, and the slight "curvature" where the hidden end would rest when it's not nudging the pressure bar to press the ink sac.

    Thanks to a broken Moore that I got recently, I was able to save the lever and install it on this pen.

    The nib has an issue with a surface crack as well, but it's a massive Moore's MANIFLEX, so I'm keeping it until I can find a replacement.
