Barrel imprint “Moore’s Midget Pat.Sep.8,1896”
Side of Barrel end cap: “2.E0” and “10”
Cap imprint “Moore’s Quick Turn Cap Pat.29,1903”
Nib imprint “The Moore” There could be more on the nib, but if so, it is hidden.
Measures just 3 3/4 inches when capped. The cap will post, and has the pin inside that prevents damage to the nib if the user attempts to put the cap on without first retracting the nib.
The pen came with a neck ribbon (sautoir) with a University of Michigan clasp and a gold/gold-filled attachment clip. The ribbon appears to be woven silk and may be original.
The pen is in excellent condition, sharp chasing and imprints, dark black hard rubber, writes nicely with some flex and I have not had it to leak, although experts say that is not an “if” it is a “when” with any safety pen.
I can provide more specific pictures if requested.
Asking $150 plus actual mailing cost from Alabama. I take payment by PayPal. Offers will be considered.
