Vintage Pens: Conklin Crescent 40
Vintage Pens: 4501 Conklin Crescent 40
Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Almost perfect but not quite. Let's get it over with. Look closely at the threads of the barrel. Yes, that is a 2mm square chunk missing. Otherwise this pen is a perfect New Old Stock Conklin Crescent 40. We restored it any way with a new ink sac. Excellent chased black hard rubber with a deep imprint. No brassing. Its 14k gold nib writes a fine to 1mm wide semi-flex line. BUT, that stupid chunk missing makes this pen a risk to break with any flex writing. The pressure could crack the barrel or worse. That is why it is $250 cheaper than the other mint and flawless 40 we have on the site. 13.9cm capped.
