Type  Pre-owned miniature ballpoint pen

Product Name  Prelude 

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer USA - less than 10 years ago (They still make Preludes.) We have not been able to gather any information about this pattern, and we think it's a prototype making use of the Levenger Balance II "Tiger Eye" plastic.

Length  4-6/16" (miniature)

Filling System  Takes Sheaffer ballpoint refills. The refill in the pen is working well. (This pen will also accept a Prelude nib unit, but only cartridges will fit the barrel.)

Color  The barrel pattern is a dark green, black, and amber "tiger eye" pattern. Matte gold cap and  shiny gold trim with a white flat cap jewel.

Condition  Near mint condition, with no cracks, chips, dents, or dings.  This is a small pen with unique and beautiful color and patterning.  The barrel has light scratching but it is very difficult to see because of the tiger eye pattern.  Everything else about the pen is pristine.  The imprints are clear.

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.)

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.
