Description:

No. 1 EF black hard rubber fountain pen, lined pattern, STOFFHAAS barrel imprint, endpiece imprinted "1 EF", teardrop clip, inset white captop star. 125mm. 14K gold circle-vent Montblanc nib, medium flex. Very fine condition, good barrel and cap color, captop faded, captop star darkened, brassing to clip.
