    Swan SF 2 with leather pouch (Stock#2572)


    The Swan SF2 is earliest among Mabie Todd's lever fillers and still bears a close resemblance to the eyedropper fillers that preceded it. A large pen, it measures 14cm capped. There are no cracks, scratches or bite-marks. The cap and barrel threads are good and the pen closes firmly with one and a half turns. The black hard rubber has faded to dark brown. The barrel and cap imprints show some wear but are legible (see photo). The original 14ct Swan No2 nib is a semi-flexible medium stub. A new sac has been fitted and the pen fills and writes superbly (see writing sample).

    An excellent example of a ninety-year-old pen and a wonderful writer. It comes in a leather two-pen zipper pouch.
