This outstanding Civil War era traveling ink pen has a shaft of natural shell with knurled gold plate grip and steel nib. The attractive writing instrument is approximately 6 ¼ inches in total length and remains nestled in its' original two-tone leather covered carrying case. Of special interest to the collector of writing instruments as well as the Civil War enthusiast, will be the FAIRCHILD maker name in the grip. Leroy W. Fairchild began manufacturing writing instruments in New York City somewhere between 1837 and 1843 and remained active through the Civil War era. The buyer will agree that the mother of pearl pen, steel nib and case all remain in exceptionally fine condition. A nice item for the Civil War collector or writing instrument enthusiast. As with all direct sales, we are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with refund of the purchase price upon return as purchased! Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
