This writing instrument is a Sheaffer Legacy 1 Fountain Pen and is model number 841 with production from 1995 to 1999. The cap has 23K gold electroplated trim with the spring-loaded clip. "SHEAFFER USA" stamped on the sides of the cap clip. The cap banding is 23K gold electroplated and stamped. This Sheaffer has the Touchdown Filling system and works as it was designed to - I tested with water and works perfectly. Or one can use the Sheaffer ink cartridges.
The cap is always securing tightly to the barrel. The trim is perfect with no scratches or brassing.
The Sheaffer 18K Gold Inlay NIB has a Stub point measuring roughly 1.25mm when measured with digital calipers. The NIB writes with an extra-fine to double broad line/stroke. In the writing sample provided, this line variations measures from .44mm on the horizontal stroke to 1.63mm on the downward stroke when measuring with digital calipers. The nib performs very smoothly when creating the writing sample. The writing sample was done with the actual pen in the images that are listed for sale. I have tested the filling mechanism with water and fills as it should. The writing sample was used by dipping the NIB in Parker Quink Blue Ink.
This Sheaffer Legacy Fountain Pen has a Classy look and feel in the hand. I would consider this Sheaffer Legacy 1 to be in Excellent to Near Mint Condition. A marvelous addition to your writing arsenal collection.
