I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, section, and barrel. Replaced the old ink sac with a new, properly sized rubber sac. Hand polished the Gold Filled Clip, Cap Banding and 14K NIB. Cleaned, Hand Buffed, Polished, and Waxed the barrel and cap to bring back the beautiful green vibrancy of fountain pen.
This fountain pen cap and barrel are in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs with the cap always securing tightly to the barrel. The cap has a gold filled clip with the clip displaying a minor bit of wear to the high-point on the ball. The gold filled cap banding displays a rich gold filled color with no brassing to speak of. The top of the cap is flat and displays the white dot in the center. The barrel is clearly and crisply stamped with, "W.A. SHEAFFER PEN CO PAT AUG 25, 08 FORT MADISON IA U.S.A. DEC 10, 12 - JAN 27 - OCT 20 - NOV 24, 14". The celluloid is in excellent condition with no real discoloration to speak of. This Sheaffer Oversize Fountain Pen measures 5 3/8" in length capped and 6 3/4" posted.
This Sheaffer Oversize Flattop has the Lever Filling system, which works fantastic. Works as it was intended to back in the 1920s.
This Sheaffer has a 14K Lifetime Nib. The actual iridium tip on this Sheaffer Nib has a fine/medium point measuring roughly .57mm when measured with digital calipers. When writing a sample with this NIB, it writes with a fine to a medium stroke/line. In the writing sample provided, the fine line measures at .54mm and will flex to a medium stroke measuring .69mm with medium to firm pressure when I 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 performed by dipping the Nib in Parker Quink Blue Ink.
Any specks of white in the images are from the cotton that I used to clean the barrel and cap.
This is a fabulous vintage Oversized Sheaffer Flat Top Fountain Pen in the Jade Celluloid that would grade in excellent condition. It is ready to write with or just add to writing arsenal collection.
