This Sheaffer Commemorative Limited Edition Fountain Pen was launched in 1996 and consisted of a limited edition of 6000 pens. Constructed from a solid brass rod with a layer of nickel-plated beneath the 23K gold electroplated finish, it is a distinctive writing instrument with significant heft. An intricate scrolled pattern has been engraved into the surfaces of the barrel and cap. The nib combines the two-tone beauty of 18K gold and a silver-colored palladium-plated chevron. As a finishing touch, each pen's individual serial number, in this case, 1262, and the W.A.Sheaffer Pen Co.Pat.No 896,861 are engraved near the lever. The W.A.Sheaffer commemorative pen comes in a chest-style box created from cherrywood. The top of the chest features the 1908 patent drawing of the lever-fill mechanism, etched into a lacquered brass plate. The Limited Edition fountain pen is packaged in a custom-designed presentation case lined with rich ebony satin, accompanied by a two-ounce refill bottle of Skrip ink. Also, accompanying the pen is the original Sheaffer documentation with a matching Limited Edition number booklet.
This Fountain Pen measures approximately 5 1/4" inches capped.
