For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Gorgeous Restored Circa 1948 Sheaffer Crest Deluxe 1750 Lifetime White Dot Plunger Fill Fountain Pen in the Golden Brown Striated Celluloid and Gold Filled Cap. This fountain pen has been thoroughly taken apart, cleaned, put back together, and now is in wonderful writing condition.
There were two models of the Sheaffer Crest from the post-war era, the 1500 and the 1750. This is the 1750 Sheaffer Crest Deluxe Model which is the larger of the two sizes in girth and length.
I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, section, and barrel. Replaced the old packing unit with new, added a new plunger gasket, and new stainless plunger rod. Hand polished the 1/10 14K Gold Filled Cap and 14K Gold 2-Tone Triumph/Wraparound 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 dings, dents, chips, cracks, teeth marks, or repairs with the cap always securing tightly to the barrel. The cap has a gorgeous alternating 4 lines pattern in the 1/10 14K Gold Fill that displays no gold fill loss - the cap has no dings or dents and displays most excellent. The barrel is clearly stamped with, "W.A. SHEAFFER PEN CO. FORT MADISON, IOWA, U.S.A. PATENTED IN U.S.A. 1750". The barrel transparency of the barrel is highly visulated with black pin-striping - it is Water Clear! There are no monograms or personalizations on the cap or barrel. The "White-Dot" is placed at the end of the blind cap. This Sheaffer Crest Fountain Pen measures 5 1/4" in length capped and 5 7/8" 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 Triumph 14K NIB. The actual writing portion, the iridium, of the 14K Sheaffer NIB has a medium point measuring roughly .63mm when measured with digital calipers. When creating a writing sample, the NIB writes with a fine stroke/line measuring between .50mm to .53mm when measured with digital calipers. The nib on this pen is very rigid, as one would expect. 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-Black Ink.
This is a great Sheaffer Crest Fountain Pen in the Golden Brown Celluloid that would grade in Excellent to Near Mint Condition. The barrel transparency is in great 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 your writing arsenal collection.
