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 and barrel displays a dark green color, almost black but is a dark green. 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 cap has a gold filled dome and the Eversharp Double Checkmarked gold filled clip that displays some minor brassing. The wide gold filled cap banding is in very good condition showing no gold filled wear. The lever bar displays some wear as shown in the images. 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 have tested with water and fills like it was 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 14K NIB and a great, smooth nib. The actual iridium tip/writing portion of the 14K Eversharp NIB has a medium point measuring roughly .70mm 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 .68mm and the broad stroke measures .98mm 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 a couple of high-line features; the gold filled dome and wide cap banding. I grade this Eversharp in 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.
