My Personal Pens: Yard-O-Led Viceroy Grand Barley

I have two Viceroys in my collection: the Victorian finish and this Barley finish.  Both pens are made out of solid Sterling silver and have wonderfully smooth nibs that are a joy to use.  This finish is a little bit more subdued than the Victorian, but both are wonderful pens.
