Does anyone know if the Wahl/Eversharp Coral color is stable or will it discolor with us. I have a pretty little ring top I'd like to use but I'm not familiar with the plastic, so I thought I'd check it  out with you guys.

Greg, I have several of the pens, and none of them show any discoloration.  I don't ever remember seeing any problem on other people's pens either - so I would say it is pretty stable.  I say go ahead and enjoy using your pen!

I've seen stained coral, but I think its usually from ink and just simply not being cared for properly.

Please join the Mabie Todd Swan project where I am trying to sort out the undocumented mess that is American Mabie Todd's from the 1930's. The last pens that MT seemed to advertise were the "Eternal" pens, and then the company put out a wide range of different styles, shapes, sizes and filling systems before eventually closing up shop. I invite you to post your pictures of your American pens

Coral Celluloid can discolor, tending to darken to an orange/brown.  I would keep a superb-Coral unused.
