Vintage Pens: Diamond Medal Ringtop
Vintage Pens: 3142 Diamond Medal Ringtop
Rockin' the Chicago of the Roaring Twenties, Diamond Medal was a top local brand. Who knows if some flapper or one of Al Capone's molls once wrote with this classic Diamond Medal Ringtop fountain pen. It has been fully restored with a fresh ink sac. Aside from the obvious discoloration, very little wear has effected this vintage pen. The imprint is worn, but you can still see it. It is insanely easy to miss, but only the first name "Alice" is engraved in the cap. The original 14k gold nib writes smooth, wet medium line...when you find the sweet spot. 11.7cm capped.
