Mabie Todd Swan SM1/60

Regular price £95.00

The Mabie Todd Swan SM1/60, introduced in 1931, was advertised with emphasis on the 'flush fitting vulcanite lever', an innovative but short lived feature.

The pen is constructed in black hard rubber engraved with very fine longitudinal lines, these have held up very well in this example.  The pen has a very good surface, and a very strong barrel imprint.  The ends of the cap and barrel respectively carry the Swan logo and the model number, 'SM1/60'.

The first SM1/60 pens were clipless, as is this pen, and an option for a revetted clip was soon added.

The pen has been fullyrestored and tested and is in excellent working condition.  The lever filling system takes up a good volume of ink and the 14 Ct Gold Swan No.1. nib, writes with a smooth, medium line and has a responsive flex, offering some line variation.

At 13.6 cm. capped and a very impressive 16.5 cm. posted the SM1/60 is a good sized pen with a well balanced, high quality feel.  It would make a first rate vintage daily writer and the flex nib would also qualify it as an effective 'signature pen'.
