Be the first to review this product

Sheaffer oversized flat top fountain pen from the late 1920s. This full size pen has a high mounted flat clip and a single cap band. Not great cosmetically due to discoloration, but it has a large pristine Lifetime 14k fine nib that is firm and smooth. Ready to write with a new sac.

Type Substantial, full size vintage fountain pen in poor cosmetic condition due to discoloration, but good working condition
Product Name Sheaffer "Flat Top" (The body, nib and cap indicate the pen was a Lifetime model.)
Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer USA -  1920s 
Length 5-5/16"
Filling System Lever filler - working perfectly with a new sac
Color Originally jade green, now discolored to many dfferent shades. Gold plated trim. 
Nib Gold Lifetime fine nib is large and in very good condition with lots of tipping material. Typical Sheaffer nail, no flex.


User grade condition, but it works really well and has a great nib.

The pen shows a lot of discoloration. The trim has some brassing: some on the ball of the clip and the top edge, and a few spots on the cap band. There are no cracks in the cap lip, though there are two arc-shaped lines. (You'll do damage if you post the cap on the barrel, so if that is a requirement for you, buying this pen will result in heartbreak. The barrel is long and comfortable to write with, without the cap.)

It has been restored with a new sac and the filling system is working well. (We'll guarantee it for a year.)

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.
