15146: Wahl-Eversharp Gold Seal: oversize jade green "Deco Band" lever-filler with rare and enigmatic "X-Seal" above clip, 13.5 cm long, gold filled trim; nib is an old replacement of excellent quality from the fabled Singer Pen Shop of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, section is not the Personal Point screw-in type, indicating that this was likely a late closeout pen originally sold with a warranted rather than a Gold Seal nib. Jeweler's scratched-in service code visible on bottom of feed on close inspection (see detail), could allow dating of nib installation. Trim excellent with no brassing, imprints strong, typical discoloration to celluloid.

Closely resembles a Waterman, similar quality but parts do not interchange. #2 warranted nib is a notable writer, only slightest fading to hard rubber.
