$95.00
For your consideration we are offering for sale this 1920s Sheaffer White Dot Ring Top Jade Celluloid Fountain Pen. This fountain pen has been thoroughly taken apart, cleaned and put back together and now is in wonderful writing condition.

I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, section, cap and barrel. Replaced the old ink sac with a new, properly sized rubber sac. Hand polished the Gold Filled Ring Top, Cap Banding and 14K NIB. Hand Buffed and Polished the barrel and cap to bring back vibrancy of fountain pen celluloid color.

This fountain pen cap and barrel are in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, teeth marks or repairs. There is some discoloration in the barrel. The barrel is clearly and crisply stamped with, "W.A. SHEAFFER PEN CO PAT AUG 25, 08 FORT MADISON IA U.S.A. DEC 10, 12 - JAN 27 - OCT 20 - NOV 24, 14".

The Cap is in excellent condition and displays only minor discoloration in spots. The cap has a gold filled 3mm cap band; the cap banding has no brassing and neither does the ring top. The Jade isn't perfect and the cap is less colored than the barrel...Color is better than many, worse than some.

The Lever Filling System works great and works flawlessly.

This Fountain Pen measures 4 5/8" in length capped and 6" posted. The 14K Sheaffer NIB has a broad point measuring roughly .98mm, measured with digital calipers.

The NIB is a Sheaffer Lifetime NIB and it is a monster NIB in size. The NIB has the serial number 2013232, which is stamped on the front and back.

When writing a sample the NIB writes with a fine line. The writing sample provided, the thinnest line measures at a fine .48mm stroke and the broad line measured with digital calipers is roughly .98mm with firm pressure. The sample was done with the actual pen in the images that is 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 Black Ink.

Any specks of white in the images are from the cotton that I used to clean the barrel and cap.

This is an wonderful vintage Sheaffer White Dot Ring Top Fountain Pen in the Jade Celluloid that is in excellent condition. It is ready to write or just add to writing arsenal collection.
