SOLD : Pilot Elite Sterling Silver

Pilot Elite pens are very durable and beautiful.  This one is no exception.  This has the same nib type as the Pilot Customs of the era.  The key feature of this pen is the Sterling Silver Cap.  I prefer Sterling Silver pens to be polished and shiny.  I have read before that many collectors prefer to see the patina that has built up over time.  I have not polished this pen.  If you would like to buy it, I can sell it as is or polish it for you.  The other reason I love these pens is that the resin (plastic) is so thick that the pen is very strong.

This pen is in good condition.  It writes very well.  It has an EF nib and the line is just slightly thinner then an F.  It is not as thin as my Platinum Bourgogne.  The nib is smoooooth.  It is a pleasure to write with!  The cap has a tiny dent in it.  It is so small that I was not able to photograph it.  The body part has a small scratch on it also.  There is a photo below.  The clip has some dings and scuffs on it.  The clip is attached to a spring inside the cap and the clip moves freely and smoothly.

The scratch is not too deep.  I believe it can be polished / buffed out.  I have not tried. but I have fixed scratches like this.
