For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Circa 1980 Sheaffer White Dot Imperial Fountain Pen with 23K Gold Electroplate Fluted pattern. This fountain pen is in Mint Condition, New Old Stock, & Never Inked.
These writing instruments are known as a Sheaffer Imperial Fountain Pen - Model 797. This fountain pen is very desirable due to the pattern and the fact that it has never been inked with original boxes. The clip has the "white-dot" which is securely intact. The cap and barrel are perfect with no scratches, dings, dents, or repairs. The cap is always securing tightly to the barrel. 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 cap lip is marked with, "GOLD ELECTROPLATED SHEAFFER CROWN LOGO SHEAFFER U.S.A.". This fountain pen measures 5 1/4" capped and 5 3/4" posted.
This Sheaffer Imperial Fountain Pen is known as a Model 797 and the design on the cap and barrel is known as the "FLUTED" pattern. The Sheaffer Imperial Model 797 was first manufactured in 1976 but by 1980 Sheaffer began using the Short Nib previously only used on the Triumph range of fountain pens - now they were being fitted to the Imperials.
The nib is marked Sheaffer 14K U.S.A. The nib has a juicy Broad point measuring 1.18mm when using digital calipers. The pen has never been inked and wanted to keep it in new old stock, mint condition for the next collector so I never sample tested it. Feels great in the hand and, at least for me, feels well balanced. The broad nib is such a treat to have and not as common as the Extra-Fine, Fine, Medium Nib points that are generally seen.
This set comes in the original inner and outer box which is in very good condition.
This Sheaffer Imperial Fountain Pen in the Gold Fluted pattern is perfect and will be difficult to find one better. I would consider this Sheaffer set to grade in Mint Condition/New Old Stock/Never Inked condition. This Sheaffer Imperial is ready to write with and will be a fabulous addition of your modern Sheaffer collection.
