10205: Mabie Todd Swan set in box: beautiful and solid New York-made lever-filler in 1/5 18K gold filled, 13.1 cm long, crisp rings chasing pattern (usually found on Edward Todd pens, but very uncommon for Mabie Todd).

Set is like new with attractive age toning, no brassing but usual Mabie Todd seam lines visible where end caps soldered on pen.
