Product Name  Sheaffer 800-TD (fountain pen) aka the Dolphin/Porpoise model. The 800 is the model with the plastic body and cap, and the gold plated trim. TD refers to touchdown filler.

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer, USA -- 1962-64.

Length  The pencil measures 5-1/16". The pen is 5-3/8"

Filling System  The fountain pen uses the Sheaffer touchdown filling system. It has been restored and tested in house. The pencil takes 0.9mm leads and uses a twist mechanism. There is a fully intact eraser beneath the cap and a few leads in the barrel. 

Color Burgundy with squared ends and gold plated trim. They have 1/4" cap bands and wide clips.

Nib  Fine 14k nib (unhallmarked). It is nicknamed the "Dolphin" nib based off of the hump at the base of the nib. It is a faux-inlaid nib. We are designating this a fine nib, but it will write on the fine-medium side.

Condition  Excellent + condition. The pen has low handwear and a few marks throughout. The most wear is on the section from capping. The pencil is a bit more worn with the barrel having a few long microscratches, a few dings, and a starting to fade imprint. The pencil cone is also scratched with hints of plating wear.

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.
