Moore L-96

About This Pen

Manufactured in 1927-28, this pen is a true oversize and was the largest pen offered by Moore at the time. It measures 5½” long capped and 0.6” wide at the cap opening.  For those with a Moore collection, this is not only a L-96 in blemish-free, beautiful condition, it is a BLUE L-96. The gold filled trim is nearly perfect and the imprint is complete and clear. The model number L-96 is clearly stamped at the bottom of the barrel. This nib is the correct huge #6, is firm and exceptionally smooth, and writes a full wet medium, proving that Manifolds aren’t all EF roofing nails.  It has excellent flow with some line variation, but is not a true flex. Much as I try to avoid hyperbole, this is one of the nicer examples I’ve seen of a Moore in any size, but the combination of its size, color, and condition make this a special pen. 

This pen is not for sale.
