I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, section, and barrel. Hand polished the Gold Filled Clip, Wide Cap Banding, and 14K Gold Triumph 2-Tone NIB. There is no wear to the gold-filled trim and has been polished to shine brightly. I also cleaned, buffed, polished, and waxed 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 no gold fill loss. 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.". 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 is the Oversized model with a wider diameter barrel measures 5 1/4" in length capped and 6" posted.
This Sheaffer has the Plunger-Filling system. I have replaced the old packing unit with new and added a new plunger gasket. I have tested the plunger filling mechanism with water and fills and dispenses as it should. The Plunger Filling System works excellent with the barrel filling full.
This Sheaffer has the gorgeous Two-toned wraparound Triumph Lifetime 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 a medium stroke/line measuring between .60mm to .68mm when measured with digital calipers. The nib writes with a consistent line and very smooth. 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.
Any specks of white in the images are from the cotton that I used to clean the barrel and cap.
This is a fantastic Sheaffer Valiant Triumph Fountain Pen in the Marine Green Celluloid that would grade in Excellent Condition. Certainly, this fountain pen is collector grade with this fine writing instrument being ready to write or just add to writing arsenal collection.
