Pre-Owned Pilot Super 100 Fountain Pen.
The Pilot Super series of fountain pens defined Pilot's catalogue during the 50's & 60's. They were known for having their nail-styled nib, hidden feed, and Quarter-Switch filling mechanism. This Pilot Super 100 is equipped with a 14k gold nib that appears to be an extra fine. This pen is in fairly good condition. There are moderate scratches and spots of discoloration on the cap/body. The clip is bent but this does not affect functionality. A common issue with the Quarter-Switch filling mechanism is the ink sac drying out and becoming brittle with age. This pen seems to have this same issue and will need the ink sac replaced.
