This fountain pen was part of a purchase from a Stationary Store in Georgia where I acquired nearly 50 New Old Stock Fountain and Ballpoint Pens in this Crest reissue design - this is just one of them.
This Sheaffer Crest displays 23K Gold Electroplate Trim with Red Laque Cap & Barrel in the Nova Pattern. This fountain pen was part of Sheaffer's color palette program. The finished depth and luster is created by more than 23 layers of hand lacquer and decoration. The fountain pen is fitted with a solid 18K/750 Solid Gold Conical/Wrap Around Nib with a palladium electroplated overlay. The cap and barrel have absolutely no damage, dents, wear to the finish. The cap is always securing tightly to the barrel. The trim is perfect with no scratches or brassing. This fountain pen has never been inked and in Mint Condition.
This Fountain Pen measures 5 5/8" inches capped and 6 1/4" posted. The Sheaffer Crest Fountain Pen comes with the original box with the fountain pen, ink converter, two ink cartridges, and Sheaffer documentation.
This writing instrument is a Sheaffer Crest Fountain Pen and is model number 581 with production beginning in 1996 till 1998. Again, this Sheaffer Crest is like new as it has never been inked. The cap has 23K gold electroplated trim with the spring-loaded clip. The cap banding is also 23K gold electroplated and stamped, "SHEAFFER U.S.A.". This Sheaffer Crest will use either an ink converter or ink cartridges. Both are supplied with this fountain pen.
The Sheaffer Crest is fitted with a Triumph Conical 2-Tone Palladium plated 18K/750 Gold Nib. The Nib is designated as a FINE nib with the actual iridium tip of this Sheaffer measuring roughly .52mm when measured with digital calipers.
This Sheaffer Crest Fountain Pen displays a deep flame red nova color on the cap and barrel in the classic Sheaffer Snorkel design with modern technology. I would consider this Sheaffer Crest Fountain Pen to be in Mint, Never Inked, New Old Stock Condition. A marvelous addition to your writing arsenal collection.
