The pen is in overall very nice condition, the pen barrel has some light darkening, there is no personalization. This oversized version of the classic Balance pen has some small surface scratches and marks.  The clip is firm, the clip, cap band and lever, are all is good condition with just a bit of wear, as shown. A portion of the from side of the cap has a 'quarter moon' shape, as shown.  It does not effect the cap securing properly to the barrel - no issue, it is strictly cosmetic.  Overall this pen is clean and nicely restored. The barrel imprint is clear and readable.   The pen has been cleaned, a new ink sac installed and it has been ink tested.  The lovely writing pen is ready to use.
