Product Name  Model #879, Sheaffer Levenger Balance II Special Edition from the revival series of the 1930s Balance pens.

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer, made in USA -- 1997-99.

Length  5-3/4 inches.

Filling System  Takes Sheaffer style cartridges, or you can fill it with bottled ink via the included piston converter. 

Color  Amber brown and yellow with black and olive green tones. The acrylic is a bit like the vintage candy stripe patterns. It has a pair of 1/16" cap bands and 22k electroplated trim. 

Nib  Medium 18k nib. (There's a faint "B" on the back of the section, but this looks like a medium or even a fine to us. Sheaffer's Feather Touch nib is smooth and springy with nice tipping material. A lot of the palladium masking has been polished away.

Condition  Excellent condition with signs of light usage and polishing marks. These Sheaffer Balance II models are very prone to cracking from posting and from pulling on the clip. This pen doesn't have any cracks. The trim looks great and the material is consistently semi-transparent. We've cleaned and tested it and it's working very well.

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.
