Type  vintage fountain pen

Product Name Sheaffer Balance 875 with a Lifetime nib. 875 is printed on the barrel and refers to the price at the time of manufacture. Circa 1938, pens got model names and this one would be "Lady Sheaffer."

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer, USA -- 1941-42, these are the official years the military clip was used but it could be from a bit later.

Length  4-7/8"

Filling System  Lever filler. A new sac has been installed and tested. It's fully restored and working well.

Color This brown striated celluloid with gold plated trim. It has a white dot above the clip and the late military clip for Sheaffer Balance models. The cap band is 1/8" wide.

Nib  Fine 14k Lifetime nib. It is mostly firm and two-tone. The silver colored masking is very intact.

Condition  Very Nice condition. The cap band and clip are noticeably brassed. There is one mark on the cap and a very fine crack on the cap lip. The crack looks more like a mark near the cap band, but it does go to the edge. The pen has essentially no handwear and is very smooth and shiny. The barrel imprint is clear, including the difficult to maintain 875. No dents, chips, or major scratches. To prevent further cracks, please do not post the pen.

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.
