Pictured is a Wahl Gold Seal, Personal-Point, lever filling lady's fountain pen in Jade Green that was manufactured in the 1920's. This pen, as with most of the pens in my collection, has obviously been little used because it shows no signs of even average wear on the surface which is absolutely slick and unmarred. The imprint, as well, is crisp like a new and unused pen. The 14 kt gold filled trim is unscathed and shows no hint of any brassing or corrosion.

The only condition under which a refund will not be granted is if the buyer is dissatisfied with the writing quality of a pen. This varies depending on many attributes of the user such as how they hold the pen, right or left-handedness, amount of pressure placed on the nib, etc. Writing quality may be improved by adjusting the nib and, if you are unable to do it yourself, should be trusted to a professional.

The offer of a purchase price refund does not apply for the writing quality of a pen because it is dependent upon too many factors, i.e.,how the pen is held, right handed vs. left handed, nib pressure, etc. This factor, however, may be adjusted to your particular preference by you or a trained professional. Each pen writes differently for different people, and we cannot adjust it without having you present.
