Why this is a rare Sheaffer Legacy and pre-production - the Sheaffer Legacy Fountain Pen was first offered in September of 1995 to the public. This particular Sheaffer Legacy is marked with, "LEGACY 18 JUNE 1995". This predates the production of the Sheaffer Legacy and is a pre-production and a factory first model. This is a significant Sheaffer Legacy with this being the only one known to exist.
This Sheaffer Legacy displays a gorgeous polished Hand-applied Black Laque finish on the barrel with a polished Palladium cap accented with 23K gold electroplated trim and fitted with a solid 18K/750 gold nib. The cap and barrel have absolutely no damage, dents, wear to the finish. This fountain pen has never been inked and in Mint Condition. This Fountain Pen measures 5 1/2" inches capped and 5 3/4" posted.
This writing instrument is a Sheaffer Legacy Fountain Pen and is model number 841-0. Again, this Sheaffer Legacy is like new as it has never been inked. 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 also in the 23K Gold Electroplating and is not stamped with the usual "SHEAFFER U.S.A.", but with "LEGACY 18 JUNE 1995". 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 accompanying ink cartridges.
The cap is always securing tightly to the barrel. The trim is perfect with no scratches or brassing.
The nib is marked 18K Sheaffer 750 and has a Medium point measuring .77mm when measuring with digital calipers. This Sheaffer 18K/750 Stub Nib shows no signs of ever being inked. The Inlaid Nib does show a hint of flex which is unusual for a Sheaffer inlaid Nib - it is a nice surprise.
This Sheaffer Legacy Fountain Pen comes with the original box with the fountain pen in the original plastic sleeve, two ink cartridges, and Sheaffer documentation.
This Sheaffer Legacy Fountain Pen is significant in the world of Modern Sheaffer Fountain Pens due to being a pre-production/factory first pen that very few people would have or even know about. I would consider this Sheaffer Legacy to be New Old Stock, Never Inked and in Mint Condition. A marvelous addition to your writing arsenal collection.
