I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, section, and barrel. Replaced the old packing unit with new and added a new plunger gasket. Hand polished the Gold Filled Clip, Wide Cap Banding and 14K Gold Triumph 2-Tone NIB. I also cleaned, buffed, and polished the barrel, cap, and blind cap to bring back the vibrancy and to protect the celluloid of the fountain pen.
This fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition with no chips, cracks, teeth marks or repairs with the cap always securing tightly to the barrel. The cap has the White Dot with gorgeous Gold Filled Clip that displays just a very minor gold fill loss on the edge of the ball at the bottom of the clip. The wide, pinstriped Cap Banding displays a bright gold fill color with no gold fill loss. The barrel is clearly stamped with, "W.A. SHEAFFER PEN CO. FORT MADISON, IOWA, U.S.A. PATENTED IN U.S.A. 1250". Collector Alert: The transparency of the barrel is highly visulated with black pinstriping - it is Water Clear! There are no monograms or personalizations on the cap or barrel. This Sheaffer Triumph Fountain Pen measures 5 1/4" in length capped and 6" posted.
I have tested the plunger filling mechanism with water and fills and dispenses as it should. The Plunger Filling System works excellent and holds an enormous amount of ink.
This Sheaffer has the gorgeous Two-toned wraparound Triumph Waverly 14K NIB. The actual writing portion, the iridium, of the 14K Sheaffer NIB has a medium point measuring roughly .65mm when measured with digital calipers. When creating a writing sample, the NIB writes with an extra-fine to medium stroke/line measuring between .35mm (with nib turned upside down) to .65mm when measured with digital calipers. The writing sample was done with the actual pen in the images that are listed for sale. The writing sample was used by dipping the NIB in Parker Quink Blue Ink.
This is a fantastic Sheaffer Triumph Fountain Pen in the Carmine Celluloid that would grade in Excellent Condition. The barrel transparency is in such immaculate condition and will be a prize for the new owner. Certainly, this fountain pen is collector grade and this fine writing instrument is ready to write with or just add to writing arsenal collection.
