This writing instrument is a Sheaffer Legacy 1 Fountain Pen and is model number 842 with production from 1995 to 1999. The cap has 23K gold electroplated trim with the spring-loaded clip. "SHEAFFER USA" stamped on the sides of the cap clip. The cap banding is 23K gold electroplated and stamped. This Sheaffer has the Touchdown Filling system and works as it was designed to - I tested with water and works perfectly. Or one can use the Sheaffer ink cartridges.
The cap is always securing tightly to the barrel. The trim is perfect with no scratches or brassing.
The nib is marked 18K Sheaffer 750 and has a Stub point measuring 1.27mm when measuring with digital calipers. This Sheaffer 18K/750 Stub Nib has been inked but has been extremely well taken care of. The Inlaid Nib does show a hint of flex which is unusual for a Sheaffer inlaid Nib - it is a nice surprise.
This Sheaffer Legacy 1 Fountain Pen comes with the original box with the fountain pen.
This Sheaffer Legacy Fountain Pen has a great look and feel in the hand with fantastic color. I would consider this Sheaffer Legacy 1 to be in Near Mint Condition. A marvelous addition to your writing arsenal collection.
