Type  Lever filling fountain pen, restored and working well.

Product Name  Balance 350, this is the long slender version.

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer, made in USA --  circa 1935 (that was the only official year that this model had this clip, but the clip was made for a decade longer).

Length  5-7/16 inches.

Filling System  Vac filler. This sacless filling system uses a long syringe-like plunger rod tightly fitted into the cylindrical ink chamber that on the downstroke creates a vacuum inside the ink chamber that draws ink into the pen through the feed. Restored here at PSP.

Color  Carmine Red striated celluloid. Gold filled trim.

Nib  FINE 14k Sheaffer's #33 nib is fairly smooth with a nice quantity of tipping material. It has a bit of springiness to it. 

Condition  Excellent condition. No cracks or chips, dings, dents, or personalization. The trim shows some brassing and wear, mostly around the ball of the clip. There are some small marks and scratches on the cap and barrel, but generally the pen looks quite good. The imprint is clear and easily read. The viewing section has excellent transparency. We've fully restored the pen and it's working very well.

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.
