Description

Details

Type  Fountain pen

Product Name  Legacy 2, Sandblasted King's Gold. Model 855.

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer, USA -- 2003-2008, this design was introduced in 2003 and Sheaffer stopped all manufacturing in the US by 2008.

Length  5-1/2"

Color  Sandblasted King's Gold pattern. It is a matte gold with a shiny cut diamond pattern. It has a wide cap band. The entirety of the pen is 23k electroplated gold.

Filling System  Hybrid Touchdown or cartridge/converter filling system. This pen uses a squeeze converter that works as a regular converter or as a touchdown. For touchdown operation, unscrew the blind cap and pull out the plunger, immerse the nib in ink, quickly depress the plunger, and count to ten. Repeat the plunging motion, tighten the blind cap, wipe off any excess ink, and go to work. (Because of the modified touchdown system, it requires two strokes, where normally it would only need one) Alternately, you can use the pen like any other C/C pen. We have tested the Touchdown filling system, and it works perfectly. 

Nib  Sheaffer 18kt 750 inlaid nib. Marked "F" on the section for fine. It has a little bit of give and the inlaid diamond shape mimics the pattern on the outside of the pen.

Condition  This beautiful pen is in excellent condition. There is a chip in the threads of the blind cap, which is shown in the pictures below. The chip does not intrude into the barrel, and therefore does not compromise the vaccuum necessary for the Touchdown filling system. The blind cap and end of the barrel also have some posting marks, an unfortunate side effect of this particular finish. No serious scratches, cracks, dings, or dents.

Policies

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.) Of course, if it's a defect, we'll refund 100%.

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.
