The pen is in overall very condition with a collectable deep Persian blue color,  there are no cracks or personalization.  The barrle and cap have some light surface scratches.  The barrel imprint is crisp, clear and readable, as shown.  The small Tuckaway clip has a hint of wear.  The pen has been water and ink tested.  The pens fills nicely, ink capacity is smaller than a standard sized touchdown filler.  This is a great little pen.
