Type  Vintage touchdown filling fountain pen.

Product Name  Imperial I, this was the first model in the Imperial series. Here's a very helpful write-up on the Imperial series of pens from the Sheaffer Targa web site.

Manufacturer and Year  Sheaffer, made in Canada – the imprint says "RD1960" which may be the date, however we had the impression the model came out in 1962.

Length  5-5/16"

Filling System  Unrestored Touchdown filling system. This early version of the touchdown filling system used a plastic touchdown tube instead of a metal one, and we have heard that it is nearly impossible to restore this version, and so we have not attempted it. We think this pen should go into a collection, unrestored, and any attempt at restoration will prevent you from returning it for a refund.

Color  Grey body and cap with gold plated trim.

Nib  Fine gold plated Stylpoint nib.

Condition  New old stock and never used, with chalkmarks. Unrestored, and possibly unrestorable.

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.)

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.
