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. The cap has the Gold Filled Clip and Wide Gold Filled Cap Banding that display in perfect condition. On the barrel is stamped, "SHEAFFER'S - MADE IN U.S.A.". There are no monograms or personalizations to either the cap or barrel. There is no brassing or wear to the cap or the gold-filled clip, or cap banding. This Sheaffer Imperial IV Fountain Pen measures 5 3/8" in length capped and 5 3/4" posted.
I have hand-polished the Cap Clip, Cap Banding, and 14K Nib. The Sheaffer White Dot is securely attached to the clip. This Sheaffer Pen has been disassembled, cleaned, and inspected for any defects before reassembling. The Touchdown Filling System has been restored and we installed a new sac and o-ring, - all been replaced with correct reproduction parts. The Touchdown filling system draws ink as it should.
The 14K Sheaffer Inlay NIB has a fine point measuring roughly .56mm when measuring with digital calipers. When creating a writing sample, the NIB writes with a fine to medium stroke/line measuring between .54mm to .66mm 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 Ink.
These Sheaffer Imperial IV Fountain Pens are becoming more and more collectible. Collectors love the Inlay nibs and these pens are steady workhorses for writing long periods. This Sheaffer Imperial IV is in ready-to-write condition or just add to your writing arsenal collection. I would consider this Sheaffer Imperial IV Fountain Pen to grade in Excellent+ Condition.
