Type  Vintage fountain pen, a rare pen with cutouts in cap and barrel intended to demonstrate the workings and structure of the pen.

Product Name  Sheaffer "Flat Top" 

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer USA - late 1920s. This has the early high-mounted clip.

Length  5-3/16"

Filling System  Lever filler, but there's no sac installed

Color  Jade green with gold plated trim, a 1/8" wide cap band, and a white dot on the top of its cap. The coloring is really nice and even on it.

Nib  NO NIB. This listing is for the cutaway "demonstrator" only.

Condition  Superior condition. No cracks or chips, dings, dents, or personalization.  All of the gold-plated trim is in great shape, no brassing or plating wear. The color looks great, no fading or darkening. Imprint is nice and clear. The cutouts in the barrel and cap give you a nice view of the inside of the pen, and if there was a sac installed, you could see it compress and expand as the lever is raised and lowered.

There are no cutouts in the section, and it isn't fixed in place, so if you find the correct sized nib, feed, and sac, this could be a working pen. The only caveat is that the cap cutouts might cause the ink to dry up, but it's also possible that the section extends far enough into the cap liner that it will keep the nib from drying out between uses.

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.
