    Mentmore Diploma (Stock#189)


    This button-filler Mentmore Diploma began life as a green marbled pen, which the cap still is. Most of the marbling has faded from the barrel leaving it a translucent amber with fragments of the original marbling remaining. There are no cracks, scratches or bite marks. The gold plating is very good on the clip but much worn on the cap band. The pen closes firmly with a single turn. The barrel imprint is faint but legible. A new sac has been fitted and the pen fills and writes well (see writing sample). A two tone steel iridium nib has been fitted and the price reflects the fact that the pen is no longer original. The nib is a firm fine.

    A distinct oddity and a very pleasant writer.
