This Sheaffer Legacy 2 Fountain Pen displays a rich brushed 23K gold electroplated cap and barrel with 23K Gold Electroplated Clip fitted with a solid 18K/750 gold nib. The cap and barrel have absolutely no damage, dents, wear to the finish. This fountain pen has never been inked and in Mint Condition. This Fountain Pen measures 5 1/2" inches capped and 5 3/4" posted.
This writing instrument is a Sheaffer Legacy 2 Mount Everest Fountain Pen and is a Limited Edition 403 of 2003. Again, this Sheaffer Legacy 2 is like new as it has never been inked. The cap has 23K Gold Electroplated spring-loaded clip. "SHEAFFER USA" is stamped on the sides of the cap clip. The cap banding is stamped, "SHEAFFER U.S.A. with the Limited Edition number 403/2003". The barrel is laser engraved with the following, "29th May 1953, Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, First ascent of Mount Everest (29,035 ft) and the Nepalese name of the mountain, Sagarmatha in Nepali script".
This Sheaffer has the Touchdown Filling system and works as it was designed to - I tested 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 or brassing.
The nib is marked 18K Sheaffer 750 and has a Medium point measuring .76mm when measuring with digital calipers. This Sheaffer 18K/750 Medium Nib shows no signs of ever being inked. The Inlaid Nib does show a hint of flex which is unusual for a Sheaffer inlaid Nib - it is a nice surprise.
This Sheaffer Legacy 2 Limited Edition Mount Everest Fountain Pen come in the original box with documentation - this is very scarce finding a Mount Everest that is Mint in the original box and all documentation. The beechwood box cover does have a crack running across the top. The box has not been glued back together - it is an expansion crack that is really only visual as the box is solid. The pen is supplied in a beechwood box alongside a cut glass ink bottle and a certificate of authenticity signed by Sir Chris Bonington.
This Sheaffer Legacy 2 Limited Edition Fountain Pen is a very scarce example and certainly a treasured writing instrument for one's collection. I would consider this Sheaffer Legacy 2 to be New Old Stock, Never Inked and the actual pen in Mint Condition. A marvelous addition to your writing arsenal collection.
