CIRCA 1942 EVERSHARP SKYLINE STANDARD SIZE FOUNTAIN PEN SMOOTH NIB RESTORED

$185.00
For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Beautifully Restored Circa 1942 Eversharp Skyline Fountain Pen. 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, breather tube, and barrel. 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 burgundy/gold striated pattern with a burgundy dome with the barrel is burgundy. This Eversharp Skyline is a standard size that measures 5 1/4" in length capped and 5 7/8" posted.

This fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs with the cap always securing tightly to the barrel. The cap has the Eversharp Double Checkmarked gold filled clip and is in perfect condition with no brassing. The gold filled cap banding is in excellent condition, also, with no 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 silicone sac and will operate for many years to come.

The Eversharp NIB is a 14K NIB. This Nib writes buttery smooth with a fairly wet line. The actual writing portion of the 14K Eversharp NIB has a medium point measuring roughly .80mm when measured with digital calipers. When writing a sample, this NIB writes with a medium to a double broad stroke/line. In the writing sample provided, the medium line measures at .82mm and the double broad stroke measures 1.32mm 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 Excellent Condition. It is ready to write or just add to writing arsenal collection.
