An impressive and unique way to write a letter, or perhaps to write the next great novel! Absolutely gorgeous 18K gold chatelaine retractable dip pen and mechanical pencil. We put up a video so you could see how it works!
It is marked on the outer barrel 18K and engraved S. Fletcher. On the inside barrel W? Patd Oct 17 71. We did not just take the pen markings word for it, we acid tested the outer barrel, inner barrel, nib and mechanical pencil lead holder and EVERYTHING tested 18K gold. It weighs 20.77 grams. It measures approx. 3 3/8″ long when closed and when totally opened 6 1/8″ long. The only thing to note, the nib has a crack and there is some wear to the inside area where it has the patent date. The nib tested 18K is an Aiken Lambert No 3 Nib.
