Product Name Sheaffer Crest (Re-issue) - Model 597 "Opalite Golden Brown"

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer, USA -- 1994-96.

Length  5-9/16"

Filling System  Takes Sheaffer cartridges and converters. A Sheaffer squeeze converter is installed, and there is a box of cartridges in the box.

Color "Opalite Golden Brown" -- Cracked ice or marbled orange, brown, and black. The orange is semi-transparent. The trim is 23k electroplated gold.

Nib  Medium 18k Conical Triumph Nib. It has palladium masking and lots of tipping material. The section is labeled M. 

Condition New old stock condition in box, the body and trim look nearly perfect with only slight handwear. A typical problem with the "opalite" Crests is shrinkage of the plastic, and sometimes you can't get the converter to fit in the barrel. When we got this pen there was a little barrel shrinkage and so we had to reduce some of the material inside the barrel in order to get the converter to fit.  There was some exterior shrinkage which you can see from certain angles (see photo below). There's no scratches, cracks, or chips.

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 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.
