For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Mint Condition, New Old Stock Still in Original Box, Never Inked, Still Stickered Circa 1943 Eversharp Skyline Fountain Pen & Pencil with Green Striped Cap and Black Barrel. The set comes with the original box, stickered, and never inked. I consider this Eversharp Symphony Fountain Pen and Pencil set to be in New Old Stock, Never Inked, Stickered, and Mint Condition!
This Skyline has the Gold Filled Eversharp Double Check Mark Clip, Gold Filled Cap Banding, Gold Filled Lever Bar, and 14K NIB. The cap displays the Green Stripes and the barrel is a black color. This Eversharp Skyline is a standard size that measures 5 1/4" in length capped and 5 7/8" 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 Eversharp Double Checkmarked gold-filled clip that displays no brassing. The gold-filled cap banding is excellent showing no wear. The gold-filled clip edge is clearly stamped with, "EVERSHARP SKYLINE PAT. MADE IN U.S.A.", with the front of the clip displaying, "EVERSHARP". There are no monograms or personalizations to the cap or barrel. The great part is the pen and pencil are still stickered. The fountain pen sticker reads, "NO. 77-S $5.00 MED-MAN". The pencil sticker reads, "NO. 177-S $3.75 USE EVERSHARP STD. LEAD".
The Eversharp Skyline Filling System is a lever filler. I have installed a new rubber sac and tested it with water and works as it should.
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.
The Eversharp NIB is a 14K NIB. The actual iridium tip/writing portion of the 14K Eversharp NIB has a medium point measuring roughly .73mm when measured with digital calipers. I have not dip tested this nib with ink just so I can keep this condition of the set Mint and true to never being inked. This Eversharp Nib is designated as a Medium Manifold type.
This is an Eversharp Skyline Fountain Pen that displays an Ultra-Cool Art Deco design. It is a rare treat to find a Skyline in unused, mint, never inked, and stickered condition. I grade this Eversharp in New Old Stock, MINT condition should be a cherished prize for the Eversharp Skyline collector.
