Swan 40 ??

17 December 2017 - 01:24 PM

Hi there again, first of all, a warm greeting from Malaga (Spain), this time I request help to identify this beautiful Pen - I leave photos in the Gallery - SWAN - it is a Pen with NIB Phillips (made in england) and it seems that in the Barrel is engraved (strong and crispy) something similar to Trade Swan 40 or Mark Swan 40, I can not identify well by the ornaments of the main letters.

 
Does anyone know what pen is this Swan 40 and at what age does it belong? Perhaps it is a Swan model and what is this 40 model? The word Swan 40 reads perfectly.
I have not been able to find information about this pen but I think that in this Magnificent Forum of people with so much knowledge in Fountain pens, maybe someone could help me.
 
I am very grateful in advance.
Best regards to all

SHEAFFER,S 5-30 - MEANING OF IMPRINT DATA

08 June 2017 - 10:20 AM

Hi again, some time ago I asked about this Pen sheafer,s  Flat Top 5-30 and you gave me accurate information about the 5-30 meaning. Now I have restored the Pen and it is a wonderful, writes like the first day, magnificent, and the IMPRINT in the barrel is perfect and here is born a new incognita for me and so I ask Help:

Does anyone know what these data mean ?:
I think the first data should be the feha of Sheaffer's initial patent, but what model? The second line has me totally disconcerted:
I reproduce what appears in the Barrel
 
PAT.AUG.25.08. ¿?
DEC.10.12 - JAN.27 - OCT.20 - NOV.24.14 (what do all these dates mean ????)
 
Thanks in advance to everyone and who can help me decipher this enigma for me
 
I have uploaded some photos in this My Gallery Album

SWAN MABOIE TODD & CO NEW YORK

19 May 2017 - 05:14 PM

Hi there, I have this small pen on which I would like to find out its origin and date of manufacture (approximate), it has the following Imprint

 
In the barrel
SWAN SELF-FILLING PEN
MABIE TODD & CO NEW YORK
PAT.APR19.10.SEP3.12.JAN 1413     (the 3 does not look very good)
 
At the end of the barrel is Imprint
"STENOGRAPH"
 
In the upper perimeter of the CAP is Imprint
SCREW CAP TIGHTLY and an arrow indicating the direction of rotation. <------<<<
 
In the NIB:
SWAN
2
14 CT
MABIE TODD & CO
MADE IN USA
 
If anyone knows the origin of this pen will make me happy, I searched for many WEB, but I can not find this model; Is Hard Rubber and is impeccable in its entirety but I do not know what year this pen can date, the Swan does not appear on the pen.
 
Help please.
Thanks in advance and best regards to all.
 
PS/ I will try uploading photos
 
I have uploaded photos in My Gallery, I hope everything is fine.
If there is any need to rectify, please tell me.
Thanks again.
