These writing instruments are known as a Sheaffer Sovereign Imperial Fountain Pen and Ballpoint Pen. This set is extremely scarce/rare and was a Salesman Award given by Sheaffer. The clips have genuine diamonds set into the clip normally where the "white-dot" would be placed which is what makes the set desirable. The set has never been inked. The cap and barrel are perfect with no scratches or repairs. The fountain pen has an ink converter filling unit and works as it was designed to - I tested it with water and works perfectly. The ballpoint pen is activated by pushing down on the clip. The cap lips are marked with, STERLING SILVER SHEAFFER CROWN LOGO SHEAFFER U.S.A.".
The cap and barrel are in perfect condition with no dings, dents, cracks, nicks, scratches, or repairs. The cap is always securing tightly to the barrel. This fountain pen measures 5 1/4" capped and 5 3/4" posted. The ballpoint pen measures 5 1/8" in length.
The nib is marked Sheaffer 14K U.S.A. The nib has a medium point measuring .75mm when using digital calipers. The pen has never been inked and wanted to keep it in new old stock, mint condition so I never sample tested it. Feels great in the hand and, at least for me, feels well balanced.
This set comes in the original wooden box which is in good condition - the elastic bands that hold the pens in place have lost their elasticity but other than that it is Excellent.
This is a very scarce set to acquire and have only seen a few in my 15 years of collecting. This Sheaffer Sovereign Imperial Fountain Pen & Ballpoint pen set with Diamond Clips is perfect and will be difficult to find one better. I would consider this Sheaffer set to grade in Mint Condition/New Old Stock condition. This Sheaffer Sovereign Imperial is ready to write with and will be a Crown Jewel of your modern Sheaffer collection.
