Vintage Pens: Conklin 5V
Vintage Pens: 4362 Conklin 5V
Jazz Age style and sophistication shines through on this new old stock Conklin 5V pencil. A "w" pattern flys down the barrel of this vintage pencil on finely wrought pinstripes. Marked rolled gold, all of the imprints and design features are strong and crisp. Patented on July 6, 1920, we suspect this one was made more likely in 1924 or '25. Twist the nose cone to advance and retract the 1.1mm lead. Pull off the tail cap to reveal an unused hardened eraser. Unscrew the eraser to reveal spare leads. No brassing, dents or scratches. Looks like it just left the factory in Toledo, Ohio. 13.3cm capped.
