I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, section, and breather tube. Replaced the old rubber sac with a new, properly sized rubber sac. Hand polished the Gold Filled Eversharp Double Checkmark Clip, Gold Filled Cap Banding, Gold Filled Lever Bar, and 14K NIB. Cleaned, Buffed, Polished and Waxed the barrel and cap to bring back the vibrancy and to protect the celluloid of the fountain pen. The cap displays a green and navy blue striated pattern with a navy blue dome and the barrel being navy blue. This Eversharp Skyline is a demi size that measures 4 7/8" in length capped and 5 1/4" posted.
This fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition with no chips or repairs with the cap always securing tightly to the barrel. The on right front portion of the dome displays what looks like few deep scratches that I tried to buff out - they are a bit deep but really only seen under magnification and wanted to point it out for clarity sake. The cap has the Eversharp Double Checkmarked gold filled clip that displays just a min hint of brassing on the bottom edge of the clip. The gold filled cap banding is in excellent condition displaying no brassing. The lever bar is not displaying any brassing. 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 Eversharp Skyline Filling System is a lever filler that works great. I added a new breather tube and properly sized rubber sac and will operate for many years to come.
The Eversharp NIB is a 14K NIB. This Nib is a pleasure to write with and writes smooth. The actual writing portion of the 14K Eversharp NIB has a medium point measuring roughly .59mm when measured with digital calipers. When writing a sample, this NIB writes with a fine to medium stroke/line. In the writing sample provided, the fine line measures at .58mm and the medium stroke measures .82mm when measured with digital calipers under medium to firm pressure. 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.
Any specks of white in the images are from the cotton that I used to clean the barrel and cap.
This is an Eversharp Skyline Fountain Pen that displays an Ultra-Cool Art Deco design and writes wonderfully. I grade this Eversharp in fine to very fine condition and is a wonderful introductory vintage fountain pen to get started in vintage collecting and/or writing with a vintage, smooth nib. It is ready to write or just add to writing arsenal collection.
