Color Sheaffer called this wild color simply "blue." It is black and blue celluloid in a bold design. Gold plated trim.  The color is excellent on this pen with no discoloration.
Nib When we got the pen it did not have a nib. Since it's a non white dot model, it probably had a Sheaffer 3 nib on it originally. We have fitted the pen with a Lifetime nib in fine, a superior nib no doubt to the original.

A superior Balance that is very striking and writes well. A worthy addition to any collection, despite the upgraded nib.

We do not recommend posting the pen. That's how cap cracks are created, and this particular color is prone to cracking.

We replaced the bladder, and tested the pen and can confirm it's ready to write. We will guarantee it for a period of one year.
