For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Circa 1998 Sheaffer Jade Balance Fountain Pen New in the Box. This fountain pen has never been inked, except for my dip test, and always contained in the box from a non-smoking home. I consider this pen in Mint Condition and New Old Stock in original box.

The barrel and cap are gorgeous with beautiful Jade color, polished with a high shine. There are absolutely no nicks, chips, cracks or repairs to this fountain pen. The cap of this fountain pen carries the "white dot", Sheaffer's lifetime guarantee symbol and the pen has been untouched in the box for the last 20 years. The cap and barrel are excellent with the cap always securing tightly. There are no monograms or personalizations to either the cap or barrel. This Sheaffer Balance measures 5 3/4" inches in length capped and 6 1/2" inches posted.

This Sheaffer features a 23K Gold Electroplated clip and double ring cap banding all highly polished. The NIB is an 18K solid gold Feather Touch with a Broad Stub point, 1.25mm when I measured using a digital caliper. This pen can be used with ink cartridges or the accompanying piston ink-converter as seen in the image. I have only dip tested this Sheaffer to perform a writing sample, which will write with a fine line of .53mm on the horizontal strokes to 1.91mm when measured with digital calipers in the writing sample listed.

The ink converter is unused and ready for your ink.

The factory box is in fair to good condition, it has seen some wear.

This is a beautiful Sheaffer Balance in Jade really makes a statement. It is ready to write or add to your writing arsenal collection. Certainly, this is a pen that you can cherish and pass down from generation to generation. Again, it is New Old Stock, Mint Condition, with an 18K Flexible Stub Nib.
