barrel and cap are both in excellent condition. There are NO major scratches, cracks,
and/or dings on the surfaces of the pen. There are typical signs of wear from use (i.e. micro-scratches). The ink
window is opaque. A decent amount of the original green wax coloring on the
cap has been preserved. The logo on the top of the cap shows a pelican feeding
two young pelicans. The cap imprints are entirely present and deep. The trim shows moderate brassing throughout the clip and cap band (please see pictures for details).
NIB & PISTON FILLER
The pen sports
a Pelikan factory fine pointed semi-flex nib. Not only does the
nib produce a smooth fine line but offers the user pleasing semi-flexible
characteristics that make for comfortable writing. There are no cracks or bends in the nib. There is plenty of
tipping material on the point. The nib inscriptions are all present and deep (please see picture #9). The
nib has been adjusted for smoothness and flow.The
piston filler functions flawlessly with no squeaking or resistance. The piston seal is a high quality reproduction synthetic seal sourced from David Nishimura of Vintage Pens.
pen has been cleaned and tested for function (filling and writing). It
is READY TO WRITE upon filling with standard fountain pen ink.
new reproduction synthetic piston seal has been installed and lubricated with silicone oil.
Renaissance Wax (yes, only the best) has been sparingly applied to the
surface to protect and preserve the celluloid surfaces
and metal trim. Renaissance Wax is used by professional vintage pen
restorers and other esteemed institutions such as the British Museum. It
is great for protecting metal from oxidation and for protecting
surfaces that often come into contact with hands. This wax will not stain or discolor
with aging. It is 1. acid neutral; 2. water resistant; and 3. alcohol resistant. The Renaissance Wax
will preserve the color of the hard rubber and protect from color loss.
The nib has been adjusted for smoothness and flow.Beyond making sure that the pens I restore write, I like to make sure they write well. Using a loupe, premium micro-abrasives, and when necessary, specially made nib repair tools each nib is carefully adjusted to provide an enjoyable writing experience based on the particular characteristics of the nib.
The pen has been fully disassembled, cleaned, and has been conservatively polished.
