Nearly New Peerless
ha42 ha42 

Peerless pens had an usual system for threading the caps. The section threads are below the grip and adjacent to the nib.  It works, but it wasn't common.  This pen is nearly new looking. There's some desk wear, but it still has it's label.  The nib is a stiff 14 Kt Warrented fine. Not a fancy pen, but a nice piece of history.  5 5/8", 133 mm.
