This writing instrument is a Sheaffer Legacy Fountain Pen and is model number 840 with production from 1995 to 1999. Again, this Sheaffer Legacy is like new with it only being gently used. The cap has 23K gold electroplated trim with a spring-loaded clip. "SHEAFFER USA" is stamped on the sides of the cap clip. The cap banding is also in the 23K Gold Electroplating displaying no wear. This Sheaffer has the Touchdown Filling system and works as it was designed to - I tested the Touchdown filler with water and works perfectly. Or one can use Sheaffer ink cartridges.
The cap is always securing tightly to the barrel. The trim is perfect with no scratches, wear, or brassing.
The nib is marked 18K Sheaffer 750 and has a Medium point measuring .72mm when measuring with digital calipers.
This Sheaffer Legacy Fountain Pen comes with the original box and Sheaffer literature.
This Sheaffer Legacy Fountain Pen feels well-balanced in the hand with a classic, sophisticated look. The Medium nib is perfect for all writing styles. I would consider this Sheaffer Legacy 1 to be in Mint Condition with it being gently used. A marvelous addition to your writing arsenal collection.
