For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Circa 1999 Sheaffer Aspen Special Edition Fountain Pen fitted with an 18K Feather Touch medium nib. The fountain pen appears to have been used very little and is considered in Near Mint Condition. I have taken apart the pen, thoroughly cleaned it, put it back together, and is now in fantastic writing condition with a smooth 18K medium nib.
The barrel and cap are gorgeous displaying vivid pearlized blue, gold, and brown marbled resin polished with a high shine. There are absolutely no nicks, chips, cracks, or repairs to this fountain pen. The cap of this fountain pen carries the "white dot", Sheaffer's lifetime guarantee symbol. The cap and barrel are excellent with the cap always securing tightly to the barrel. There are no monograms or personalizations to either the cap or barrel. This Sheaffer Balance II measures 5 3/4" inches in length capped and 6 1/2" inches posted.
This Sheaffer features a 23K Gold Electroplated clip and double ring cap banding all highly polished with no wearing of the trim.
The NIB on this Sheaffer is an 18K solid gold Feather Touch with a Medium point measuring .62mm when measured using a digital caliper. When creating a writing sample, the NIB writes with a medium to broad stroke/line. The writing sample provided in the image has the medium stroke measuring at .77mm and the broad stroke at .96mm with medium to firm pressure when measured with digital calipers. The writing sample was done with the actual pen in the images listed for sale. The writing sample was used by dipping the NIB in Montblanc Blue Ink. NOTE: This nib writes with a soft, smooth, wet line.
The Sheaffer Balance II comes with an Ink Converter that I have tested with water and works as designed. It will also accept Sheaffer ink cartridges.
The Sheaffer Balance II comes with a Sheaffer Box and Sheaffer Literature/Documentation.
The Aspen Special Edition by Sheaffer was offered in a special and vivid pearlized blue, gold, and brown marbled resin. This pen coloring is spectacular! It is ready to write with or just add it to your writing arsenal collection.
