pen, brown and tortoise and cap. The barrel band is medium brown
and green coloured tortoise. Please consider that this model has
a brown filling knob which was used only for a small range of
production. The cap has the characteristic double ring. A lovely
pen – very hard to find!Background and history: In 1937 a
new model went into production, known as the 100N (N for 'new').
Although similar in shape to the 100, this was a bigger pen, both
in length and diameter, which consequently had a larger ink
capacity. The other main visible difference was the filling knob,
which was more conical and now smooth as opposed to the ribbed knob
on the 100. Versions of this model can also be found with a shorter
cap top. These were intended as export models to countries where,
it is reported, fashion dictated that a flap on the top of a
jacket pocket would fold better if the pen did not stick up too
far.The cap rings came in two versions - a double ring or a
broad, fluted decorative ring with matching fluted clip. Because
of the war and subsequent gold shortage, gold nibs were not
allowed, so pens made during wartime had palladium nibs. Later in
1939 palladium was also forofferden and nibs were made of chrome,
nickle and steel.In 1942 the pen was further improved by
replacing the piston cork with one made of a synthetic material
normally used as a sealing agent to prevent home water leaks.
Towards the end of its life the filling system was further
improved with a new piston and piston rod.Over the span of
its production, the 100N came in a wide range of finishes - black
caps with black, green and grey marbled barrels and 14ct gold
bands, tortoise shell and lizard finishes known as the 101N,
mother-of-pearl, all white rolled gold or 14ct pens and, of
course, the famous Toledo. The
production of the 100N series ended in 1954.
