CIRCA 1945 SHEAFFER TRIUMPH CARMINE LIFETIME BALANCE FOUNTAIN PEN RESTORED

$200.00
For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Fabulous Restored Circa 1945 Sheaffer Lifetime White Dot Triumph Nib Fountain Pen in the Carmine/Red Celluloid. This fountain pen has been thoroughly taken apart, cleaned and put back together and now is in wonderful writing condition.

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, Gold Filled Cap Banding and 14K Gold Triumph 2-Tone 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, or repairs with the cap always securing tightly to the barrel. The cap has the White Dot in an unusual placement on the top of the cap. The clip displays gorgeous Gold Filled color with no gold fill loss. The smooth 2 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". Collector Alert: the section is the same Carmine pattern as found on the rest of the pen. The visulated barrel displays transparency albeit with mild ambering! There is a personalization on the barrel that reads, "WALLACE T. ROUSE". This Sheaffer Triumph Fountain Pen measures 5 1/4" in length capped and 6" posted.

This Plunger Filling system has been completely taken apart and put back together with correct reproduction parts. 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 gorgeous Two-toned wraparound Triumph 14K NIB with Waverly Point (tipping turned up). The actual writing portion (the iridium) of the 14K Sheaffer NIB has a fine point measuring roughly .54mm when measured with digital calipers. When creating a writing sample, the NIB writes with a medium stroke/line measuring between .61mm to .83mm when measured with digital calipers. The writing sample was done with the actual pen in the images that are listed for sale. The Nib writes very smoothly and certainly a pleasure to write with. 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 Carmine Celluloid that would grade in Excellent Condition. This Sheaffer Triumph Fountain Pen is a great example that is ready to write with or just add to writing arsenal collection.
