For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Never Inked Sheaffer Targa Classic Fountain Pen and Ballpoint Pen, Model 1080, in the Laque Cobalt Blue Ronce pattern. This fountain pen has never been inked and always contained in the original box. The ballpoint is also in Mint Condition and never used. I consider this pen set to be in New Old Stock, Mint Condition in original box with Sheaffer documentation, and Never Inked.
This fountain pen was part of a purchase from a Stationary Store in Georgia where I acquired nearly 25 New Old Stock Fountain and Ballpoint Pens in the Targa design - this is just one set of them.
This writing instrument is a Sheaffer Targa Classic Fountain Pen and is model number 1080 with production beginning in 1989 till 1996. Again, this Sheaffer Targa Classic Set is like new as it has never been inked. This Sheaffer Targa displays a Cobalt Blue Ronce Laque finish, with 23-carat gold electroplated trim. Fitted with a 14K solid gold nib. The depth and quality of this finish is a result of being individually hand-lacquered 14 times and polished, also by hand, to a deep, luminous glow. The top of the backside of the cap is stamped, "SHEAFFER U.S.A.". This Sheaffer Targa Classic will use either an ink converter or ink cartridges. The Ink Converter is supplied with this fountain pen which works and I have tested with water.
The cap and barrel have absolutely no damage, dents, wear to the finish. The cap is always securing tightly to the barrel. The trim is perfect with no scratches or brassing. This fountain pen and ballpoint pen have a high shine to the finish as they have never been inked and are in Mint, New Old Stock Condition.
This Fountain Pen measures 5 3/8" inches capped and 5 3/4" posted. The diameter of the pen at the widest point is 11.26mm. The Sheaffer Targa Ballpoint Pen measures 5 1/8" in length. The Sheaffer Targa Fountain Pen and Ballpoint Pen come with the original box, fountain pen ink converter, two Sheaffer Ink cartridges, Sheaffer documentation, and working Ballpoint refill.
The Sheaffer Inlaid Nib is marked 14K Sheaffer 585 and has a Fine point measuring .52mm when measuring with digital calipers. This Sheaffer 14K/585 Fine Nib shows no signs of ever being inked. I did not perform a writing sample only to keep this set in New Old Stock, Mint, Uninked condition for the new owner.
This Sheaffer Targa Classic Fountain Pen & Ballpoint Pen in this Laque Cobalt Blue Ronce pattern is very desirable and becoming increasingly difficult to acquire, especially in New Old Stock, Never Inked condition. I would consider this Sheaffer Targa Set to be in Mint, Never Inked, New Old Stock Condition. A marvelous addition to your Sheaffer Targa writing arsenal collection.
