For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Restored Circa 1929 Sheaffer Senior Size White Dot Flat Top Fountain Pen in the Jet Black Celluloid. This fountain pen has been thoroughly taken apart, cleaned, and put back together and now is in wonderful writing condition.
The Senior Flat top fountain pen that dates to the late 1920s to early 1930s.
I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, and section. Replaced the old ink sac with a new rubber sac. Hand polished the Gold Filled Clip, Cap Banding, Lever Arm, and 14K NIB. I have cleaned, buffed, and polished the barrel and cap to bring back the vibrancy and to protect the material of the fountain pen.
This fountain pen cap and barrel are in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs with the cap always securing tightly to the barrel. The cap has a gold filled clip that displays some gold filled wear on the ball of the clip and on the first "S" near the hump on the clip. The gold filled cap banding has been polished to shine brightly once again but some areas do display some wear. The top of the cap is flat and displays the white dot in the center. The barrel is clearly and crisply stamped with, "W.A. SHEAFFER PEN CO PAT AUG 25, 08 FORT MADISON IA U.S.A. DEC 10, 12 - JAN 27 - OCT 20 - NOV 24, 14". The celluloid is in excellent condition displaying a deep jet black color. This Sheaffer Senior Flat Top Fountain Pen measures 5 5/16" in length capped and 6 3/4" posted.
The Sheaffer Senior Flattop has the Lever Filling system, which works fantastic. Works as it was originally intended.
This Sheaffer has a 14K Lifetime Nib with serial number 1145962. The actual iridium tip on this Sheaffer Nib has a medium point measuring roughly .63mm when measured with digital calipers. When writing a sample with this NIB, it writes with a fine to a medium stroke/line. The nib is extremely rigid. In the writing sample provided, the fine line measures at .45mm with very light pressure and will flex to a medium stroke measuring .68mm with medium to firm pressure when I 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 performed by dipping the Nib in Montblanc Blue Ink.
Here is a fantastic writer in the Senior/Oversize Sheaffer Flat Top Fountain Pen that I would grade in Fine to Very Fine condition. This pen is in wonderful condition and will be a prize for the new owner. Certainly, a collector grade fountain pen that is ready to write with or just add to writing arsenal collection.
