This fountain pen cap and barrel are in as close to perfect condition as one can get with color, chasing, with no chips, cracks or repairs and the cap always securing tightly to the barrel. The barrel is clearly stamped with, "CONKLIN SELF-FILLING PEN NON-LEAKABLE TOLEDO OHIO U.S.A. and the 2P model number". The cap is a clipless type. The crescent filler is stamped on one side, "CRESCENT-FILLER TRADE MARK". I have tested the Crescent filling mechanism with water and fills as it should. The Crescent Filling System works great and operates as it was intended to. The Gold Filled Crescent Filler is in near perfect condition with no gold filled loss.
I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB and feed. I hand cleaned the outside and inside of the cap and barrel with mineral oil. Replaced the old rubber sac with a new silicone sac. The Black Chased Hard Rubber material has perfect black coloring and the chasing is clean and crisp - the way these should look. This has to be the best Conklin Black Chased Hard Rubber Fountain Pen I have ever handled - it is near mint condition. This Conklin 2P Fountain Pen measures 4 3/8" capped and 5 1/2" posted.
This Conklin 2P has a #2 Nib that is flexible. The actual iridium tip on this Nib has a medium point measuring roughly .69mm when measured with digital calipers. When writing a sample with this NIB, it writes with a medium to a triple broad stroke line. In the writing sample provided, the medium line measures at .68mm and will flex to a triple broad stroke measuring at 2.11mm with normal to medium pressure when measuring with digital calipers.
Any specks of white in the images are from the cotton that I used to clean the barrel and cap.
The Conklin 2P is in Near Mint-Mint condition and I would consider it one of the best fountain pens I have handled from Conklin from this era - it would be hard pressed to find another in this condition. The hard rubber material is quite remarkable with it's amazing chasing crispness and deep black coloring. This Conklin is ready to write if you choose to do so, or just add it to your writing arsenal collection.
