For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Circa 1960 Sheaffer Compact II Fountain Pen in Gray with 14K Medium Inlaid nib. This fountain pen has been cleaned and now is in ready to write condition.
NOTE: The Compact II was an "upscale" model, fitted with an inlaid 14K gold nib and gold filled trim. The pen retailed for $10.00 USD so it was expensive and priced the same as the far more complex PFM I.
This fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition with no chips, cracks, teeth marks, or repairs with the cap always securing to the barrel.
