DIAMOND MEDAL Fountain Pen

SOLD  12/2020  

In blue LAPIS LAZULI with gold filled trim. 'Diamond Medal' imprint on pocket clip. Medium cap band. Medallion on cap top. Made in USA c1929. 

The DIAMOND MEDAL pens were produced for the Sears Roebuck store chain by the National Pen Products Co of Chicago Illinois. Sears had several pen brands and the DIAMOND MEDAL was the top of their range. Their middle range pens were the WEBSTER and lower end GOOD SERVICE.

    

Our pen is called the STANDARD model but is the largest of the Diamond Medal pens produced and very much an oversize model. Measures 138mm (5 3/8") capped and 175mm (6 3/4") with the cap posted. Lovely 'chunky' shape.

Crisp barrel imprint 'Diamond Medal Pen Co STANDARD Chicago ILL.'

The cap is personalised with the name JOHN RUSER. I suppose this could be removed but I much prefer to leave as is. Don't know who John Ruser was but he was obviously a very lucky fella to own this beautiful pen.

  

Massive 14ct Gold nib - weighs 1gm on its own!  Stamped 'Diamond Medal 14k 8.' Firmish MEDIUM nib in excellent condition. Smooth as silk.

  

Lever filler - fully serviced - new sac - write tested - perfect working order.

Pen is in excellent used condition and correct in all respects.

Superb to write with, very collectable and quite rare.
