Type Compact fountain pen
Product Name Compact I Cartridge Pen. Check out Pen Hero's detective work about the model.
Manufacturer and Year Sheaffer, made in U.S.A. -- 1960-64. The earliest models briefly featured a "Visulated" barrel with multiple rectangular clear windows, so the lack of them indicates this is the second version.
Length Just over 4-3/4"
Filling System The fountain pen takes Sheaffer-style cartridges. Squeeze and piston converters are too long to fit in the pen. We will include a fresh cartridge.
Color Grey with steel plated trim. The caps are squared and the barrels are rounded. Both pieces have 3/8" bands and short clips.
Nib EXTRA FINE Sheaffer inlaid steel nib. The Compact series of pens all have the "V" shaped inlay nibs.
Condition Near mint condition, never inked. No scratches, cracks or dents. Some light marks here and there, picked up in storage. Everything works well and looks great. With chalk mark that says "Comp I, X-FINE, $5"
