"Mint" Tropen Fountain Pen w/Box

Medium Nib 

     This is a beautiful MINT Tropen Fountain Pen w/Box. c. 1958. Classic "Black" cap & barrel with green visulated barrel portion and rolled gold trim. The length of this pen measures 5 1/3"(closed with cap on), barrel width=0.45", cap width=0.53". The cap has imprints that read, "Tropen MADE IN GERMANY". The gilt(gold plated) nib is Medium and is marked, "IRIDIUM POINT GERMANY M". The nib/feed unit is interchangeable and screws into the section. This pen has a piston filling mechanism with a durable plastic material in the piston called Lupolen. To fill with ink you remove the barrel end cap, immerse the nib/feed/section portion in the ink bottle, and turn the twist filling mechanism(see pictures). Comes with midnight blue velvet lined box pictured.

     As a point of history, the Tropen company emphasized practicality and streamlining of manufacture so that it's products represented excellent value. There is substantial collector information and different Tropen models pictured(including a pen pictured like this one, see pictures 14 & 15 page 233) in the comprehensive pen collecting book, "Fountain Pens of the World, by Andreas Lambrou"(see pages 231-235). 

     The condition of this pen is "MINT", unused, and uninked with no flaws. Comes with the original Tropen midnight blue velvet lined box pictured. Great for collection or everyday use.
