For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Mint Sheaffer Targa Slimline Fountain Pen, Model 1021S, in the Laque Imperial Red pattern. This fountain pen has been dipped but the condition is Near Mint to Mint. I have taken this pen flushed it with water, cleaned it, put it back together, and is now back in wonderful writing condition.
This fountain pen was part of a purchase from a Stationary Store in Georgia where I acquired nearly 25 New Old Stock Fountain and Ballpoint Pens in the Targa design - this is just one of them.
This writing instrument is a Sheaffer Targa Slimline Fountain Pen and is model number 1021S with production beginning in 1982 till 1987. This Sheaffer Targa displays an Imperial Red Laque finish, with 23-carat gold electroplated trim. Fitted with a 14K solid gold nib. The depth and quality of this finish are a result of being individually hand-lacquered 14 times and polished, also by hand, to a deep, luminous glow. The top of the cap is stamped, "SHEAFFER". This Sheaffer Targa Slimline will use either an ink converter or ink cartridges. I have 6 slimline ink cartridges supplied with this fountain pen.
The cap and barrel have no dents or wear to the finish. The cap is always securing tightly to the barrel. The trim is perfect with no scratches or brassing. This fountain pen has a high shine to the finish as it has been used sparingly.
This Fountain Pen measures 5 3/8" inches capped and 5 3/4" posted. The diameter of the pen at the widest point is 8.06mm. The Sheaffer Targa Fountain Pen comes with the original box and six fountain pen ink cartridges.
The Sheaffer Inlaid Nib is marked 14K Sheaffer 585 and has a medium point measuring .74mm when measuring with digital calipers.
This Sheaffer Targa Slimline Fountain Pen in this Laque Imperial Red pattern is very desirable and becoming increasingly difficult to acquire. I would consider this Sheaffer Targa Fountain Pen to be in Mint Condition. A marvelous addition to your Sheaffer Targa writing arsenal collection.
