This black Columbus 96 is part of Eugenio Verga's early production. It sports a very uncommon clip which makes the model even more interesting.
The filling mechanism is the typical Columbus back lever in the shape of a small spoon.
The pen is fitted with a very early Columbus nib, which is F and flexible.
Imprints on cap and section are very deep and the imprint on the barrel is perfectly readable, too.
The pen can be dated to the early 1930's.
