I suppose I should have asked Sem about this pen in a new Topic. I'll correct the mistake here. I picked up this little guy at an Antique Store in Pasadena, California for 35 dollars. A new sac and a little bit of cleaning brought it to this condition. If anyone is looking for a daily user with a flex nib this pen should be among your choices. Its post WWII so reliability is excellent. Just a fantastic writer. Other than that I have lots to learn about this pen if anyone has something to add.

Nice find & for $35.00 your a sumgai on that one!

Beautiful pen & if it's anything like the CS's i've had in the past it's a heck of a sweet writer.

Very much so. Smooth, wet and flexible. I confess its a bit different than the Sheaffer nibs I'm used to but it does find its way into my pocket with some regularity.

Beautiful pen, Pete. Nice find.

I am looking for a good 58 or 60 myself.

Anyone out there have one F/S or trade??


Thanks,

BC,

First, welcome to our list. You should have listed your search in the "Wanted to Buy" section. That being said, try contacting Max Davis at www.conwaystewartpens.co.uk. He's got lots of CS pens and is a reputable seller. I've bought a number of pens from him.

That's a real find. The "Tiger's Eye" pattern is one of the most desirable and it looks to be in very good condition. It's always hard to establish value but a Google search will show you comparable pens offered for 200 on retail sites.

Regards,
Sem.
