Type  Vintage Sheaffer fountain pen in excellent working condition. 

Product Name  Sheaffer Balance Lifetime "Petite", this was the smallest of the many Balance sizes. 

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer, USA -- 1930-32.

Length  4-1/4"

Filling System  Lever filler - working perfectly with a new sac.

Color  Marine Green with a 1/8" cap band. Marine Green is a green and black marbled pattern. Gold plated trim and white dot. It has a long humped clip, but it doesn't stretch onto the cap band like the earliest Balance clips do.

Nib  Extra Fine 14k Sheaffer Lifetime nib. It writes smoothly and is very firm.

Condition  Very Nice condition. The celluloid is in great condition with not too much handwear. Most of the wear is on the cap. The cap lip has a few hairline cracks. Three almost reach the cap band but there are also very tiny ones. The ball end of the clip has some brassing. The imprint is very clear and the pen is working well. We do not recommend posting this pen as it will worsen the cracks.

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.
