This is a rare Conklin Crescent 4NL. Its in very good condition. However the pictures have not shown the oxidation that well. There is a noticeable difference the section and the rest of the body of the pen. While it's not drastic it's noticeable. However it is quite slight. The chasing is still very crisp and present. The floral engraving is also quite nice on the cap lip and is a very nice touch. As you can see from the last picture there is some brassing on the clip.

The nib is very flexible and soft. It can go 2mm but with casual pressure around 1.7-1.8 mm. I forgot to show on the writing sample but the pen writes super juicy, but not overly so. The ink is Yama-Budo which shows gold sheen under a juicy flow and as you can see it is present all over the writing sample, even the unflexed parts

Looking for 275
