CIRCA 1943 EVERSHARP SKYLINE GRAY MOIRE CELLULOID FOUNTAIN PEN RESTORED

$245.00
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 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 display a gray-black striped longitudinal celluloid pattern known as Moire. This Eversharp Skyline is a Demi that measures 5" in length capped and 5 5/8" 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, gold filled cap banding, and the Eversharp Double Checkmark stamped gold filled clip. There is no wear to any of the gold filled trim. 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 semi-flexible 14K smooth writing nib. The actual iridium tip/writing portion of the 14K Eversharp NIB has a fine point measuring roughly .52mm 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 with very light pressure and the broad stroke measures 1.08mm with medium to firm pressure when measured with digital calipers. 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. I grade this Eversharp to easily be in 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.
