I'm pretty sure most know the incredible history of the T-1, so I won't belabor that part and the scarcity of the set. This particular set was pre-owned and it was very lightly used, beyond a little color from the converter filler, I think it was generally just stored in a pen display case. Both pieces appear to me to be flawless. This is the brushed finish and the cap activated ballpoint still has the price and model label attached to the clip (might belong on the pen).The ballpoint refill still operates. This early experiment with titanium was a remarkable achievement and resulted in a pen that still gives me a rush as I first look at the nib.
In this case I believe this is the fine/medium variant of the available nib sizes, adjustable by the screw on the feed. The ruby-looking end jewels are the perfect final touch.Pictures for the rest of the story.
