Type  Substantial, full size vintage fountain pen in excellent working condition

Product Name  Sheaffer "Flat Top" 

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer USA - late 1920s

Length  5-3/8"

Filling System  Lever filler, restored with a new sac and working perfectly.

Color  Black chased hard rubber with gold plated trim. Lined pattern. (We usually see this pen in black radite/celluloid, and the hard rubber version is less common.)

Nib  FINE 14k Lifetime nib is large. In great condition, with nice tipping, firm.  Some scratches on the nib, as can be seen in the photos below.

Condition  Excellent condition with no cracks or chips or personalization. The black hard rubber has oxidized only slightly so the pen is still a nice dark, even black color. There's a thin line of brassing on the edge of the cap band, as well as a little brassing on the ends of the clip (see photos). The imprint on the barrel has been worn but it is still readable. The pen appears quite smooth and fairly shiny. It's fully restored and working well, with no personalization.

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.
