15623: Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal set: rare black chased hard rubber oversize lever-filler, 13.8 cm long, gold filled trim, roller clip, Personal Point nib unit with manifold nib; made in Canada, while the matching pencil is Chicago production. The pen came to us with an old replacement "WAHL EVERSHARP"-marked clip matching the long clip on the pencil, though a wear spot showed that the original clip was the shorter "WAHL" clip used earlier in Deco Band production. We have installed an original early-style clip, though it is USA production and can move slightly from side to side. Hard rubber is very unusual in this series, as buyers strongly preferred the colorful celluloid options at the time.
