produced very distinctive and very well made pens. The pens that they made were top
quality until bad business conditions forced the sale of the company in 1938. The quality
drops off dramatically after that. The early pens were leaders in innovation and
gimmickry. Just about every pen collector has a Crescent Filler in their collection and
the later models are even more creative.
There are very few problems consistent with these pens. The weakest part of the pens are the Rocker Clips. These are held on by a thin spring steel piece that is held in place by the inner cap. Water and ink corrode this steel piece and the clips break off. They leave a 1/8" hole that is often over looked as the location of the missing part. Replacing the clip is easy with the correct tools and the correct replacement clip.
