Product Name Valiant TM.
Manufacturer and Year Sheaffer, made in USA -- early 1950s.
Filling System Touchdown filling system. We've restored it and it's working very well. We will send instructions on how to fill the pen.
Color Blue with gold plated trim and a 3/8" cap band with grooves on the edges.
Nib MEDIUM Triumph two-tone 14k nib is firm and smooth with nice tipping material. The masking is fairly worn, but this does not affect its writing at all.
Condition Excellent condition. The nib masking is a bit thin in spots, but this does not affect the performance of the pen. There is light handwear and scratching on the barrel and cap. The cap band has light scratching, but looks really good with no brassing. The clip has some brassing near the open end. The white dot has ambered a bit, but otherwise looks great. The color is nice and even. The pen is free of cracks, chips, or personalization. It's fully restored and working well.
