Type Fountain pen
Product Name Cadet Tip-Dip
Manufacturer and Year Sheaffer USA - this model ran from about 1952 to '63, but at some point they changed their design to have a section which matched the color of the body. Before that, all sections on these pens were black.
Filling System The pen has "Tip-Dip" filling system, which is a lot like a touchdown system, and we'll include instructions on its use. It has been restored and is working well.
Color Gray with chrome plated trim.
Nib FINE Sheaffer's F1 steel nib.
Condition Excellent condition with no cracks, chips, dents, or dings. This is a nice-sized, shiny pen, in an understated color with classic styling. The barrel has light scratching, with some marks near the imprint. The cap has light to moderate scratching, a couple with slight ink staining. The plating on the clip and cap band looks fantastic, with just some microscratching. The imprints are clear.
