Type Vintage Fountain Pen
Product Name Sheaffer Lifetime "Flat Top"
Manufacturer and Year Sheaffer, USA -- 1930s. High mounted clips were the earliest style of clip, and were followed by the long humped clip, then the short humped clip such as the one on this pen.
Filling System Lever filler, working perfectly with a new sac
Color Jade green with gold filled trim. It has a ball ended clip and a black section.
Nib Gold Lifetime fine nib is large and in great condition. The nib is firm and smooth.
Condition Very nice condition for this over-sized, smooth and shiny fountain pen. There is a small crack in the barrel threads that extends about 2.5mm, and we have priced the pen accordingly. It has been repaired and we believe it to be stable, though we did not do the work. The color is slightly ambered to a warm shade of green, but overall the color is quite even and lovely. The cap and barrel have light handwear throughout. There is some brassing on the cap band, but the plating on the clip looks fantastic. The imprints are worn but legible.
