||Good condition. This is a rather large pen. The hard rubber on the cap and barrel is smooth. The hard rubber on the barrel has light discoloration, while the hard rubber on the cap is stronger. Minimal brassing on the clip and gold band on the cap. No brassing on the lever. The front of the barrel towards the nib has wear from twisting on the cap. The barrel has a small scratch. The barrel has a hole near the lever, as can be seen in the photos. The hole appears to have been drilled and is quite deep. The hole, however, does not appear to extend through to the center of the barrel. One possibility is that the hole may have been previously drilled so that the pen could be displayed. The pen has been thoroughly cleaned, fitted with a new sac and is ready to write.
