For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Beautifully Restored Circa 1943 Eversharp Skyline Fountain Pen in Gray Moire Celluloid. This fountain pen has been thoroughly taken apart, cleaned and put back together and now is in wonderful writing condition.

I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, section, and breather tube. Replaced the old rubber sac with a new, properly sized sac. Hand polished the Gold Filled Eversharp Clip, Gold Filled Lever Bar, and 14K NIB. Cleaned, Buffed, and Polished the barrel and cap to bring back the vibrancy and to protect the celluloid of the fountain pen. The cap and barrel display a gray-black striped longitudinal celluloid pattern known as Moire. This Eversharp Skyline is a Standard size that measures 5 1/4" in length capped and 5 3/4" 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 cap has a secure derby with gold filled "EVERSHARP" clip which displays no wearing of the gold filled material. The lever displays just a hint of wear on the lever arm. There are no monograms or personalizations to either the cap or barrel.

The Eversharp Skyline Filling System is a lever filler that works great. I have tested with water and fills like it was originally 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 .64mm when measured with digital calipers. When writing a sample, this NIB writes with a medium to broad stroke/line. In the writing sample provided, the medium line measures at .65mm with very light pressure and the broad stroke measures 1.03mm with medium to firm pressure when measured with digital calipers. I have to reiterate how amazing the nib is with it writing so buttery smooth. 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 by Henry Dreyfuss that was produced from 1941 to 1948. I grade this Eversharp to easily be in Very Fine to Excellent condition and is a spectacular and desirable writing instrument in the Gray Moire pattern. It is ready to write or just add to writing arsenal collection.
