Vintage Pens: 3054 Mabie Todd (Swan) 42
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Fans of black chased hard rubber and semi-flex nibs will rejoice with this classic Roaring Twenties beauty. New York's very own Mabie Todd Swan 42 is a great way to dip back into the era...or find the meaning of life, if you're a Douglas Adam's and "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" fan. (42 being the meaning of life.) Our vintage pen is fully restored and crack free. Its biggest flaws are heavy brassing at the bend and ball of the pocket clip. The chasing is visible, though slightly faded, but the imprint is good and strong. We especially like the white swan on the top of the cap! The 14k gold nib is original and semi-flex going from fine to about 1mm. 13.6cm capped.
