Vintage Pens: Edward Todd Gold-Plated #5
Vintage Pens: 5328 Edward Todd Gold-Plated #5
Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
The cool part about moving closer to New York City is that we now find much cooler vintage pens from the city in the 19-teens and '20s. Here is a stunning Edward Todd fountain pen from the 1920s. At its core is a black hard rubber foundation with a 16K gold-plated overlay. We can't say it is perfect, as it has a few very minor imperfections such as light wear marks and a couple of tiny scratches, but there are no dents or long, deep scratches. We don't even seen a ring around where the cap would post. It isn't perfect, but it is close enough that it should be a museum-worthy candidate. It is restored with a working ink sac. Its #5 14k gold nib writes a smooth medium line without very much flex. Compared to the nib, the gold plating looks as if it has a shade of green-gold. Click the headline for close-ups. 13.6cm capped.
