A Swan Leverless

A Gold filled Mabie Todd Swan fountain pen.

I recently restored this very nice Swan. It’s a ‘leverless’ model that fills by turning the knurled cap at the end of the barrel. Fitting a new sac is very straight forward and the system works extremely well, one turn is all that is needed. I guess the system fell out ov favour because of perceived additional wear to the sac.
