This pen was surely made by Faber-Castell, as it uses that company's patented double piston ink reserve mechanism, though both pen and pencil sport Goldfink's trademark hexagonally faceted tops. Condition is near mint but for patches of pitting on the stainless steel nib.

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). Matching 1.1 mm Fyne Poynt pencil, both pieces bear a neatly engraved 1928-dated inscription on their barrels. Nib is set tight, so writes a very fine line, but the tip is large enough that it could be adjusted to a medium fine if opened up. Set is like new with attractive age toning, no brassing but usual Mabie Todd seam lines visible where end caps soldered on pen.
