Type  Fountain pen 

Product Name  Sheaffer Lifetime Triumph 1250. This model is the slender, war-time version with the wide cap band.

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer USA, circa 1942

Length  5-1/8"

Filling System  Vac-filler (works well, just restored here at Peyton Street Pens).

Color  Carmine striated with gold plated trim ... the cap band is approx. 7/8" wide. White dot.

Nib  14k masked large Lifetime Triumph nib - medium, no flex, super smooth. 

Condition  Excellent condition with some plating wear. No cracks, chips, or dings, though there are the typical fissures we see on these striated pens at the very ends (we've never seen them crack). There is handwear on both the trim and the plastic. There is brassing on the clip, particularly on the ball of the clip, but none that we can see on the cap band. The blind cap screws to the barrel leaving a tiny tiny gap. The clip is a little bit loose and there's about a 1/16" gap between the ball of the clip and the surface of the cap. Good barrel clarity. No personalization. It's an attractive pen.

Returns Policy: No questions asked, money back guarantee. If you have a problem with an item, we will replace/repair it, or refund your money, the choice is up to you. If you decide you don't like the nib after you've inked a new pen, we'll refund 75%. (There will be no such charge for a pen that is pre-owned, provided you return it in the condition received.) Of course, if it's a defect, we'll refund 100%.

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.
