L-R 3220,3230,3240,3250 and 3261. The last is a BHR pen, the brass threads indicate earlier pens and all carry the No.2 nib. Range from good to excellent, the cap bands and lever are often found brassed and a couple of these are in that category. The grey is rarely found without some discolouration.

Hugh

Hi Hugh,

Nice to see the Swans. Great user pens. It's a shame about the greys; it just seems to be a bad colour for fountain pens, and it's not just the Swans. For a while, Parker Newhaven included it among the standard colours but dropped it, doubtless because of the discolouration. Even when they don't take on that yellow staining, there always seems to be at least some difference between the cap and the barrel. This is one of the better Victory Mark IVs but you can still see the variation:



I've seen the same thing in Watermans and Wyverns too.
