This fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition with no chips, cracks, teeth marks or repairs with the cap always securing to the barrel. The cap has the Gold Filled Clip and Wide Gold Filled Cap Banding that display in perfect condition. The back of the cap is stamped, "SHEAFFER'S - MADE IN U.S.A.". There are no monograms or personalizations to either the cap or barrel. There is no brassing or wear to the cap or the gold-filled clip and cap banding. This Sheaffer Imperial IV Fountain Pen measures 5 3/8" in length capped and 5 3/4" posted. The barrel is still chalk marked on the barrel.
I have hand polished the Cap Clip, Cap Banding, and 14K Nib. The Sheaffer White Dot is securely attached in the clip. This Sheaffer Pen has been disassembled, cleaned, and inspected for any defects before reassembling. The Touchdown Filling System has been restored and we installed a new rubber sac and o-ring, - all been replaced with correct reproduction parts. The Touchdown filling system draws ink as it should.
The 14K Sheaffer Inlay NIB has a medium point measuring roughly .77mm when measuring with digital calipers. I have not written with this Sheaffer Imperial as I wanted to keep it in Mint, New Old Stock, Never Inked Condition for the next collector.
These Sheaffer Imperial IV Fountain Pens are becoming more and more collectible. Collectors love the Inlay nibs and these pens are steady workhorses for writing long periods. This Sheaffer Imperial IV is in ready to write condition or just add to writing arsenal collection. I would consider this Sheaffer Imperial IV Fountain Pen to grade at New Old Stock Mint Condition.
