Type  Large lever filling fountain pen, restored and working well.

Product Name  Early Lifetime "Flat Top" with a white dot on top of the cap and a Lifetime nib. High mounted clip.

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer, made in USA - late 1920s.

Length  5-1/4 inches. This was the oversize model.

Filling System  Lever filler - working perfectly with a new sac.

Color  Black and pearl with gold plated trim and a white dot on the top of its cap. The pearl parts of the barrel have become a pearlescent gold.

Nib  Fine Sheaffer's Lifetime gold nib. It's firm and smooth.

Condition  Very nice condition, no chips, dings, dents or personalization. The main flaw is the barrel discoloration, but the pen is structurally very sound. There are some surface cracks in the cap which can be seen in the first photo, but we don't believe that they worsen as this area is backed by the inner cap liner which gives the area some additional support. We've priced the pen accordingly. There's some brassing on the cap band and on the ball of the clip. There's light scratching on the celluloid. The imprint is crisp and readable. The pen has been fully restored 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 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.
