Product Name

Model 440 -- this is one of the "quasi-Imperials" like the model 330, which mirror the style of the more expensive Imperials of the era.
Manufacturer and Year Sheaffer - 1970s
Length 5-3/8" capped

Filling System

Cartridge filler, with an included convertor which allows you to fill it from the bottle.


The body comes in a few different colors (make your selection form the pulldown menu). The cap is brushed stainless steel.
Nib Inlaid "short diamond" steel nib. Smooth. We mostly have these pens in fine, with a few XFs and Mediums while they last. (We also have a few 440 with the V-shaped inlaid nib, which Sheaffer started putting on these 440s later.)



This pen is new old stock from the 1970s. It has never been used and the pen has never been inked. It is absolutely perfect with no dents, dings or even micro scratches! The original sticker is still on the cap, though on some pens it is dark and hard to read.

Not returnable for full refund if the pen has been filled with ink, unless it is defective.

Please note that we have this pen as a "second" with some cosmetic imperfections .. see this listing.

Returns Policy: No questions asked, money back guarantee. If you have a problem with an item, we will replace/repair it, or refund your money, the choice is up to you. If you decide you don't like the nib after you've inked a new pen, we'll refund 75%. (There will be no such charge for a pen that is pre-owned, provided you return it in the condition received.) Of course, if it's a defect, we'll refund 100%.

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 PolicyInternational 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.
