Type  Vac-fill vintage fountain pen, working well.

Product Name  One of the small Balance models, marked 350, with no white dot.

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer, made in USA - circa 1934-42 (with the flat ball humped style clip which Sheaffer used on non-Lifetime pens into the 1940s).

Length  Barely over 4-3/4".

Filling System  Vac-fill system. We've fully restored the filling system with new seals and it's working perfectly.

Color  Brown striated celluloid with gold plated trim, a single thin cap band, and the flattened ball style clip which was introduced in 1934 or '35. There's a sort of transparent window in the pattern on either side of the barrel so you can see the ink level (see photos).

Nib  FINE gold Sheaffer's #3 nib. It's smooth with nice tipping material, and quite firm.

Condition  Excellent condition with a few very light scratches on the cap and barrel, and on the trim. No cracks or chips, dings or dents, or real plating wear, and no personalization. The ink-viewing panes on the barrel is very clear and clean. It's fully restored and working well.

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.
