For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Circa 1963 Sheaffer Lifetime Model 1250 Fountain Pen in the Gray color with 14K Extra-Fine Inlaid 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 The very top right edge of the clip displays very minor wear but I point it out for clarity sake. The cap and barrel are stamped, "SHEAFFER'S LIFETIME MADE IN U.S.A.". There are no monograms or personalizations to either the cap or barrel. This Sheaffer Lifetime Model 1250 Fountain Pen measures 5 3/8" in length capped and 5 5/8" posted.
I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, section, and feed. Hand polished the Cap Clip, Cap Banding, and 14K Lifetime Nib. The Sheaffer White Dot is securely attached in the clip. 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 Sheaffer Pen has been disassembled, cleaned, and inspected for any defects before reassembling. This Sheaffer Lifetime uses either ink cartridges or ink converter. The original 1963 Push Button Ink Converter is included and the filling system works as originally intended to.
The Sheaffer 14K Inlaid Nib has an Extra-fine point measuring roughly .35mm when measuring with digital calipers. In the writing sample provided, the NIB writes with an extra-fine line that measures roughly .38mm to a fine .47mm 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-black Ink.
This Sheaffer Lifetime Fountain Pen is basically an Imperial IV and back in 1963 Sheaffer, Sheaffer celebrated their 50 year anniversary renamed some of the "white-dot" imperials to Lifetime - this is one of them. Collectors love the Inlaid nibs and these pens are steady workhorses for writing long periods due to being light in the hand. This Sheaffer Lifetime Model 1250 is in ready-to-write condition or just add to your writing arsenal collection. I would consider this Sheaffer Triumph Imperial Fountain Pen to easily grade in Very Fine to Excellent Condition.
