For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Restored in Original Box Circa 1943 Eversharp "64 Set" Skyline Fountain Pen & Pencil in Navy Blue with 14K Solid Gold Caps. This fountain pen has been thoroughly taken apart, cleaned, put back together, and is now in wonderful writing condition.
The pen and matching pencil set sold for USD $64.00 originally, priced promotionally with a popular radio quiz show, "The $64,000 Question", and the pens were called "$64 Sets."
This Skyline has the 14K Solid Gold Eversharp Double Checkmark Clip, Cap, Derby, and 14K NIB. The barrels are a dark navy blue color, almost black but is navy blue. This Eversharp Skyline is a Standard size that measures 5 1/4" in length capped and 6" posted. The pencil measures 5 1/4" inches in length.
This fountain pen & pencil cap and barrels are in magnificent condition with no chips or repairs with the cap always securing tightly to the barrel. The cap has a 14K Solid Gold Derby and the Eversharp Double Checkmarked 14K gold clip that displays most excellent. The 14K solid gold cap is excellent showing no dings or dents. The caps is clearly stamped with, "EVERSHARP SKYLINE PAT. MADE IN U.S.A. 14 KARAT GOLD", with the front of the clip displaying, "EVERSHARP". On the pencil, I point this out for clarity sake, there is a tight small split near the left side of the clip (see image) - it does not hinder any functionality. It measures roughly 5.76mm in length and about .20mm wide at the widest point - a jeweler could laser weld this but like I said it is very tight and does not hinder the performance of the pencil. There are no monograms or personalizations to either the cap or barrel to either the fountain pen or pencil.
The Eversharp Skyline Filling System is a lever filler that works great. I have tested with water and fills like it was intended to when manufactured. I added a new breather tube and properly sized rubber sac and will operate for many years to come.
The Eversharp NIB is a semi-flexible 14K smooth writing nib. The actual iridium tip/writing portion of the 14K Eversharp NIB has a medium point measuring roughly .78mm when measured with digital calipers. When writing a sample, this NIB writes with a fine to broad stroke/line. In the writing sample provided, the fine line measures at .53mm with very light pressure, and the broad stroke measures .96mm with firm pressure when measured with digital calipers. The sample was done with the actual pen in the images that are listed for sale. The writing sample was used by dipping the NIB in Parker Quink Blue Ink.
The pencil is a "click-activated" type by pressing the dome down. The lead will repel out the nose cone as it should. The eraser is still securely intact as well.
This set comes with the Red Velvet outside Eversharp box. The box is very clean and would consider it to be in Near Mint Condition.
This is an Eversharp Skyline Fountain Pen & Pencil Set that displays an Ultra-Cool Art Deco design with the rare smooth solid 14K gold Caps. I grade this Eversharp Skyline Fountain Pen in Near Mint condition should be a cherished prize for the Eversharp Skyline collector. The small fissure in the pencil's clip area is the only cosmetic flaw.
