CIRCA 1942 EVERSHARP SKYLINE STANDARD SIZE FOUNTAIN PEN SMOOTH STUB NIB RESTORED

$195.00
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, Wide 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 navy dome with the barrel is navy. 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 wide 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 rubber sac and will operate for many years to come.

The Eversharp NIB is a 14K Factory Stub NIB. This Nib writes smoothly with a fairly wet line. The actual writing portion of the 14K Eversharp NIB has a medium/broad point measuring roughly .91mm 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 .70mm on the horizontal strokes and the double broad stroke measures 1.24mm when measured with digital calipers under medium 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 with the less common wide cap banding. I grade this Eversharp in Excellent+ to Near Mint Condition. It is ready to write or just add to writing arsenal collection.
