Just a nice gift

I recently got this Mabie Todd & Co "Swan" No.2 as a gift from Barry Rose, former conductor of the Choir of St. Paul Cathedral (London) and a reputable organist, himself a passionate FP collector. It was manufactured in England, c.1915. A good writer, with a nice #2 nib and with an original ladder feed. I like its erstwhile look, even the barrel has some oxidation and the chasing is faded on the barrel. Marked with "Safety screw cap" on the barrel and "C2/T.U. (?)" on its end. Thank you Mr. Rose!
