    Mentmore Diploma (Stock#1148)


    This button filler Mentmore Diploma began life as a blue marbled pen, as the cap still is, but the barrel has faded to a pale amber with fragments of the marbling remaining. There are no cracks, scratches or bite marks and the pen closes firmly with one and a half turns. The barrel imprint is clear. No gold plating remains on the clip and the cap band shows brassing. A new sac has been fitted and the pen fills and writes well (see writing sample). A plated steel nib has been fitted and the price reflects the fact that the pen is no longer original. The nib is an extra-fine firm.

    A distinct oddity and a very nice writer.
