The pen is in overall very nice condition with consistent color, lovely gold trim, there are no cracks, the 14k gold "Signature" cap band has name personalization.  The barrel and cap have some micro surface scratches.  The clip is firm and has a nice crisp imprint.  The nib unit has been ultrasonically cleaned and the pen has been ink tested.  This is a great looking pen and in my opinion, one of the most spectacular style nibs ever made.
