Franklin-Christoph Model 19 “1901”, Black w/King’s Gold Band, Broad Stub (1.1mm) steel nib- $95 (SOLD)

Selling it because the wide nib isn’t for me and the pen has been in a pen case, unused, for nearly 4 years.

 

Franklin-Christoph Model 20 Marietta, Tiger Red, Medium Steel nib – $95 (SOLD)

Franklin-Christoph Model 20

The pen is in excellent condition and writes perfectly. Includes a converter. No box or paperwork. Selling it because I’m not a fan of the slip cap, and I have two of these, keeping the other one.

 

Kaweco AL Sport, Black Stonewashed, Extra Fine Steel nib – $65 (SOLD)

Kaweco AL Sport Black Stonewashed

The pen is in excellent cosmetic and writing condition. (My review) No converter or paperwork. I will include a Kaweco tin, although it’s unlikely to be the original for this pen. Does not include the box that was pictured in the review, Selling it because the pen hasn’t been used in nearly four years. I always pass it over for the Brass Sport (reviewed earlier today).

Waterman Carene Deluxe, Silver Plate, 18K Gold Medium Nib – $60 (SOLD)

Waterman Carene DeluxeCosmetically this pen is fair to good (no deep scratches, chips or broken pieces). There is a scratch/blemish on the barrel. There’s also discoloration around/under the clip that I couldn’t polish out with a non-abrasive cloth. I couldn’t photograph these since the pen is so reflective. Visible in the photo is a general discoloration. It looks like it might be oil from my fingers, but it’s not. The pen does write perfectly, Converter included. No box or paperwork.
