    Default Mabie Todd Swan 15ct

    Here is a lovely pen that sees little use. It is a Mabie Todd Swan made of solid gold. The cap/clip is marked 15k, the barrel is marked 15ct and made in New York, and it sports a No. 2 flexible nib marked Swan14ct and Mabie Todd & Co. Ltd. On the indicia area there is an engraving: LONDON 5-7-29 with lovely intertwined script initials.

    I suspect JWK had a birthday celebration in London on the 7th of May, 1929, when the economy could still justify such an extravagant gift imported from Mabie Todd's New York facility.

    A gorgeous pen! US and British Swan designs didn't diverge much for a while.

    This a beautiful pen!! But this pen is very clean and tidy from ageing.
    Most of the metal pens, have the problem of the corroded section due to ink getting in ageing to silver or metal section wasted up. I learnt that point from a collector.
    I have a Swam silver pen, it has the tiny signs of that problem.
