I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, section, and barrel. Replaced the old packing unit with new, added a new plunger gasket, and new stainless plunger rod. Hand polished the Gold Filled Clip, Wide Cap Banding and 14K Gold Triumph NIB. I also cleaned, buffed, and polished the barrel, cap, and blind cap to bring back the vibrancy and to protect the celluloid of the fountain pen.
This fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition with no chips, cracks, teeth marks or repairs with the cap always securing tightly to the barrel. The cap has the White Dot with gorgeous Gold Filled Clip that displays just a hint of gold fill loss are the very tip of the clip otherwise it is polished to shine brightly. The wide, smooth with 4 ring Cap Banding displays a bright gold fill color with no gold fill loss. The barrel is clearly stamped with, "W.A. SHEAFFER PEN CO. FORT MADISON, IOWA, U.S.A. MADE IN U.S.A. 1250". The transparency of the barrel is highly visulated with only minor ambering! There are no monograms or personalizations on the cap or barrel. This Sheaffer Triumph Fountain Pen measures 5 1/8" in length capped and 5 5/8" posted.
I have tested the plunger filling mechanism with water and fills and dispenses as it should. The Plunger Filling System works excellent and holds an enormous amount of ink.
This Sheaffer has the wraparound Triumph 14K NIB. The actual writing portion (the iridium) of the 14K Sheaffer NIB has a medium point measuring roughly .81mm when measured with digital calipers. When creating a writing sample, the NIB writes with a medium to broad stroke/line measuring between .73mm to 1.00mm when measured with digital calipers. I point out the Nib writes very smoothly with a wet line. 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.
Any specks of white in the images are from the cotton that I used to clean the barrel and cap.
This is a fantastic Sheaffer Triumph Fountain Pen in the Golden Pearl Celluloid that would grade in Excellent Condition. The wide cap banding on these Sheaffer Triumph Balance Fountain Pens are hard to find collector variant. The barrel transparency is in great condition and the nib writes ultra smooth. Certainly, this fountain pen is collector grade and this fine writing instrument is ready to write with or just add to writing arsenal collection.
