Wyvern produced 60Cs over a long period and they’re not all the same. Some are slender pens with not much in the way of trim, others are thicker and more opulent.
This one’s quite a large, thick pen and the Greek Key band sets it above the run-of-the-mill pens of the time. The time, I would guess, is about 1948, going by the clip, and I expect that this pen and pencil set in their hard case would have been quite pricey. 60Cs are usually lever fillers but this one’s a button filler.
Strangely, Wyvern’s Leicester Dragon emblem is nowhere to be seen – not on the barrel, the nib, the box or the instructional papers. Perhaps Wyvern was going for a clean, uncluttered look. The large nib is warranted and broad.
The pencil is a Wyvern No 37 and its trim echoes that of the pen. It has lead and works well.
This is a good set, tastefully presented, and it shows that soon after the war, Wyvern was more than holding its own. Indeed, judging by the number of post-war Wyverns I see, I think they must have been doing rather well until the ballpoint came along and dealt a killer blow to fountain pen production by this company, like many others.
