Very nice+ condition, with a rich green pearl marbled pattern, no cracks or personilizations.   The cap and barrel have some very light surface scratches. The clip is firm and in nice condition with a crisp Blackbird imprint.   The clip and lever have just a touch of brassing, as shown in the photos. The barrel midsection has a crisp and clear imprint of the BLACKBIRD trade mark, BLACKBIRD SELF-FILLER, MABIE TODD CO LTD, MADE IN ENGLAND, and the barrel end of the pen has the model number 5241 (52 model 41 = green pearl) imprint, all as shown. The back of the cap and the feed also have the Blackbird imprint. This is a really lovely pen, the photos do not do it justice.
