For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Restored Circa 1961 Sheaffer Imperial IV Fountain Pen in the Blue color with a 14K Medium Inlay nib. This fountain pen has been thoroughly taken apart, cleaned, and put back together and now is in wonderful operating and writing condition.

This fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition with no chips, cracks, teeth marks or repairs with the cap always securing to the barrel. The cap has the Gold Filled Clip and Wide Gold Filled Cap Banding that display in perfect condition. The back of the cap is stamped, "SHEAFFER'S - MADE IN U.S.A.". There are no monograms or personalizations to either the cap or barrel. There is no brassing or wear to the cap or the gold-filled clip and cap banding. This Sheaffer Imperial IV Fountain Pen measures 5 3/8" in length capped and 5 3/4" posted.

I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, section, and feed. Hand polished the Cap Clip, Cap Banding, and 14K Nib. The Sheaffer White Dot is securely attached in the clip. I have cleaned, buffed, and polished the barrel, cap, and blind cap to bring back the vibrancy and to protect the material of the fountain pen. This Sheaffer Pen has been disassembled, cleaned, and inspected for any defects before reassembling. The Touchdown Filling System has been restored and we installed a new rubber sac and o-ring, - all been replaced with correct reproduction parts. The Touchdown filling system draws ink as it should.

The 14K Sheaffer Inlay Nib NIB has a medium point measuring roughly .77mm when measuring with digital calipers. In the writing sample provided, the NIB writes with a medium line that measures roughly .67mm to .76mm when measuring with digital calipers. The writing sample was done with the actual pen in the images that are listed for sale 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.

These Sheaffer Imperial IV Fountain Pens are becoming more and more collectible. Collectors love the Inlay nibs and these pens are steady workhorses for writing long periods. This Sheaffer Imperial IV is in ready to write condition or just add to writing arsenal collection. I would consider this Sheaffer Snorkel Set to easily grade in Excellent+ Condition.
