I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, section, and barrel. Replaced the old packing unit with new, added a new plunger gasket, and new steel plunger rod. Hand polished the Gold Filled Clip, Cap Banding and 14K Gold 2-Tone NIB. 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 and Cap Banding which, display absolutely no brassing - the trim is in fabulous condition. The barrel is clearly stamped with, "W.A. Sheaffer Pen Co Fort Madison, Iowa, U.S.A. Patented in the U.S.A.". Collector Alert: The transparency of the barrel is Water Clear. There are no monograms or personalizations on the cap or barrel. This Oversized Sheaffer Balance Fountain Pen measures 5 1/2" in length capped and 6 3/8" posted.
I have tested the filling mechanism with water and fills as it should. The Plunger Filling System works excellent and effortlessly.
This Sheaffer has the 2-Tone 14K NIB. The actual writing portion, the iridium, of the 14K Sheaffer NIB has a fine point measuring roughly .56mm when measured with digital calipers. When creating a writing sample, the NIB writes with an extra fine stroke/line. The writing sample provided in the image has the extra fine stroke measuring at .40mm when 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 used by dipping the NIB in Parker Quink Blue-Black 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 Oversize Sheaffer Balance Fountain Pen in the Golden Brown Celluloid that would grade in Near Mint Condition. The barrel transparency is in such immaculate condition and will be a prize for the new owner. Certainly, this fountain pen is collector grade and this fine writing instrument is ready to write with or just add to writing arsenal collection.
