For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Sheaffer Targa Classic Fountain Pen, Model 683, in the 23K Gold Electroplate Medici Diamond pattern. The pen has been dipped in ink before but is considered in Mint 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 Classic Fountain Pen and is model number 683 with production beginning in 1989 till 1994. This Sheaffer Targa displays a gold plated finish in what is known as the Medici Diamond pattern which is engine-turned brass with a diamond pattern filled with black lacquer highlighted with 23-carat gold electroplated trim. The fountain pen is fitted with a 14K gold Medium nib. The top of the cap is stamped with, "SHEAFFER U.S.A.". This Sheaffer Targa Classic will use either an ink converter or ink cartridges. The Ink Converter is supplied with this fountain pen which works and I have tested it with water.
The cap and barrel have no dings, dents, repairs, or wear to the finish. The cap is always securing tightly to the barrel via a friction fit. The trim is perfect with no scratches or brassing. This fountain pen has a high shine to the finish.
This Fountain Pen measures 5 3/8" inches capped and 5 3/4" posted. The diameter of the pen at the widest point is 11.26mm.
The Sheaffer Inlaid Nib is marked 14K Sheaffer 585 and has a medium point measuring .85mm when measuring with digital calipers. These nibs write beautifully and are known to be steady workhorses for writing long periods of time.
This Sheaffer Targa Classic Fountain Pen in this Medici Diamond pattern is very desirable and becoming increasingly difficult to acquire, especially in this type of condition. This Sheaffer Targa Fountain Pen is in Mint Condition, with it only being dipped in ink by the Stationary shop. It is a great addition to your Sheaffer Targa Classic writing arsenal collection.
