Type Vintage Fountain Pen
Product Name Sheaffer Lifetime "Flat Top"
Manufacturer and Year Sheaffer, USA -- 1920s
Filling System Lever filler, working perfectly with a new sac
Color Jade green with gold filled trim. It has a ball ended clip and a black section. There is considerable discoloration: while the barrel is a uniform dark green, the cap retains only a bit of the original light green color.
Nib Gold Lifetime fine nib is large and in great condition. The nib is firm and smooth.
Condition Very nice condition, excellent if it weren't for the discoloration. There is brassing at the top of the clip and on the outward facing parts of the ball ending of the clip. There's brassing on the cap band as well but it's much more noticeable. The lever looks good. There are some small black stains on the barrel near the never. The imprint is clear.

Payment Policy: Paying via Credit Card or PayPal are the only methods allowed for addresses outside the United States. Customers from the United States also have the option of sending a check, money order or cashier's check. Payment method is selected during checkout.
Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.
International Shipping Policy: International shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country. Most of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.
Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.
UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.
