Sheaffer Model Identification

Part One:

Early HR, Flat Tops, Balance, WASP, and Triumph/Crest

We don't claim that this list is comprehensive or scholarly, and we acknowledge that we may have identified some pens incorrectly. These are pens we've had a chance to capture via photograph and identify via research. The dimensions are not to scale, nor will you get anywhere by comparing one pen to another, if you are looking for an idea of comparative size. (Send us a message, and we can probably dig up more info about the specific pen we photographed.)
