Type  Fountain pen set

Product Name  Imperial Triumph. There were two versions made primarily identified by whether or not the cap band said, "Sheaffer" or "Sheaffer's." In this case, the fountain pen and the mechanical pencil are "Sheaffer Imperial Triumphs" and the ballpoint pen is a "Sheaffer's Imperial Triumph."

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer, made in USA -- 1970s.

Length  The fountain pen is 5-3/8". The pencil is 5-1/16". The ballpoint is 5-1/8".

Filling System  The fountain pen is a touchdown filler that has been restored with a new sac and o-ring. The ballpoint pen takes Sheaffer-style ballpoint refills. A working blue refill is installed. The mechanical pencil takes 0.9mm leads. The ballpoint pen extends and retracts the tip via the clip whereas the pencil leads extend and retract via a twist mechanism.

Color  Gold filled in grouped sets of eight fine lines. There's a blank cartouche on the barrel designed so the pieces can be engraved. The pencil has a black square at the top of its cap, probably to make it easier to tell the pencil from the ballpoint.

Nib  MEDIUM 14k diamond-inlay nib. It is unmarked but seems like a medium to us when the tip is compared to other diamond-inlay nibs.

Condition  Excellent + condition. All three pieces have light microscratches and polishing marks. There is a scratch on the fountain pen cap, probably picked up in storage or shipping. Their imprints are clear and the patterns are well defined. No plating wear or dents. They ship in original Sheaffer box.

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.
