Manufacturer and Year Sheaffer, USA -- circa 1950
Filling System Touchdown filler - We've fully restored it and it's working perfectly. We'll send instructions on how to use the filling system.
Color Black body with stainless steel cap and gold plated trim. The cap has a pattern of lines on it.
Nib FINE two tone 14k Triumph style nib does not have a size marked, but it looks like a fine. It's quite stiff and has a slight upturn at the tip.
Condition Excellent + condition. There's light handwear on the pen and a few short scratches on the cap and barrel but no bite marks, cracks, chips, or dents. The clip has a small scratch near the open end. The nib has a slight dent on the right side; it might be a tool mark, or perhaps someone used the pen with a ruler to draw lines and the ruler left its mark. In either case, it does not affect the function of the pen. No brassing on the trim. It looks quite good, the color is great. The imprint is clear.
