This writing instrument is known as Sheaffer Balance II Fountain Pen - it is a modern fountain pen and is a revival of the Balance pens made in the 1930s. It is like new as it has only been inked to capture a writing example. The cap has the Sheaffer imprinted gold plated clip, gold plated cap banding, and clean White Dot. The barrel is perfect with no scratches or repairs. This Sheaffer has an ink converter filling unit and works as it was designed to - I tested with water and works perfectly.
The cap and barrel are in perfect condition with no cracks, nicks, scratches, or repairs. The cap is always securing tightly to the barrel. The trim is perfect with no scratches or brassing. This fountain pen measures 5 7'/8" capped and 6 3/8" posted.
The nib is marked Sheaffer Lifetime 14K 585 Made in U.S.A. The nib has a medium point measuring .60mm when using digital calipers. The nib is semi-flexible with line strokes measuring from a medium .60mm stroke to a broad 1.12mm stroke under medium to firm pressure when measured with digital calipers. The nib was only dip tested with Parker Blue Quink Ink. The pen has never been inked otherwise - just for this writing sample. I consider this pen to be New Old Stock.
This is Classy Sheaffer Balance II Fountain Pen in the Jet Black material with Gold Plated Trim. I would consider this Sheaffer to grade in Mint Condition/New Old Stock. A marvelous addition to your writing arsenal collection.
