I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, section, cap and barrel. Replaced the old ink sac with a new, properly sized one glass ply sac. Hand polished the Gold Filled Clip, Cap Banding and 14K NIB. Hand Buffed and Polished 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, teeth marks or repairs. There is a tiny bit of discoloration at the butt end of the barrel. The cap has a gold filled clip and 2mm cap band; the cap banding has no brassing, the clip has some on the ball and between the "SH". The top of the cap is flat and displays the white dot. 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 Cap is in excellent condition as well, but displays some discoloration between and around the ball clip and cap band. The Jade isn't perfect and the barrel is less colored than the cap...Color is better than many, worse than some.
The Lever Filling System works great and works flawlessly.
This Fountain Pen measures 5 3/8" in length capped and 6 3/4" posted. The 14K Sheaffer NIB has a medium to broad point measuring roughly .83mm, measured with digital calipers.
The NIB is a Sheaffer Lifetime NIB is a monster NIB in size. The NIB has the serial number 073106, which is stamped on the front and back. Also, stamped is 84 on the back of the NIB.
When writing a sample the NIB writes with a fine line and very smoothly. The writing sample provided, the thinnest line measures at a fine .53mm stroke and the broad line measured with digital calipers is roughly .94mm with firm pressure. The sample was done with the actual pen in the images that is listed for sale. I have tested the filling mechanism with water and fills as it should. The writing sample was used by dipping the NIB in Parker Quink Black Ink.
Any specks of white in the images are from the cotton that I used to clean the barrel and cap.
This is an wonderful vintage Oversized Sheaffer Flat Top Fountain Pen in the Jade Celluloid that is in excellent condition. It is ready to write or just add to writing arsenal collection.
