Moore pens don't often get much discussion on these pages. However, they were one of the big first-tier pen companies on the East Coast before the Depression hit. Based in Boston, Moore Pen Co. actually had a very interesting history. This Moore L-95 fountain pen is oversized length and standard size width. We love the red dot on top of the cap that is very similar to Sheaffer's white dot. Click the headline to see it better. We believe this pen was made in 1927. It has been fully restored with a fresh ink sac. There are no cracks or serious blemishes other than a little ring around the tail due to past posting and a little pit visible in the main photo. The original inkfeed and 14k gold nib write a firm fine line. A touch of brassing on the trim. The inside pressure bar mechanism rattles around a little, but it is actually securely attached to the lever. 13.7cm capped.
