Mabie Todd Swan L205/62

In all the years and many hundreds of Swans that have passed through my hands this is undoubtedly the best one so far! It is a Leverless L205/62 which is Wine And Silver, further described as red, greenish silver and gold. It truly is an outstanding pattern, a wine-dark sea (to quote Homer) of red with islands of silver floating therein and the odd unexpected splash of gold.
There’s not a lot more to say about it. The pen was made in about 1927. It has a number 2 Eternal nib. Other than that, I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
