    Swan SF 3 (Stock#3218)


    This Swan SF 3 shows all the signs of a hard life, hence the price. It is clipless. The pen measures 14.2 cm capped. It closes firmly with one and a half turns. There are no cracks or bite marks but there is a long, shallow scratch at the barrel end (visible in the second photo). The black hard rubber is considerably faded and the chasing is worn. The barrel imprint is worn but legible. The cap imprint is clear and sharp. The long, locking lever has retained most of its gold plating but there is pitting. A new sac has been fitted and the pen fills and writes well. The 14 carat gold Swan No 3 nib has a slight bend towards the tip but writes well and has considerable flexibility.

    A fine old warhorse which has served in many campaigns!
