Type  Vintage mechanical pencil working well

Product Name  "Lifetime" was the product line, but Flat top is what collectors call this style of 1920s-30s Sheaffer

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer, USA - circa 1925-29

Length  5-5/16". This would have been the mate to the oversize fountain pen.

Filling System  Takes 1.1 mm (or "thick") leads which it extends via the traditional twist mechanism (you turn the top piece to extend and retract the lead). We'll include a small pack of leads.

Color  Jade green celluloid with gold filled trim. This is the earlier pale version of the jade green color.

Condition  Very nice condition.  This is an elegant pencil in a mellow shade of jade green.  The barrel has light to moderate scratching and a small dot of what appears to be dried ballpoint ink near the nose cone.  The nose cone has some small deep scratch marks.  The clip has a noticeable X scratch at the very top (gold testing?) and the ball has plating wear.  The gold flat top and the cone tip both have a small gap between the metal and the plastic, but the mechanism still works fine.  However, the top lip of the flat top is dented and irregular.  The imprints are clear.

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.
