These Limited Edition Fountain Pens are the fourth limited edition from Classic Pens (CP) and is series CP4 Civil War known as the Washington & Richmond pattern. It was a cooperation between Classic Pens, Sheaffer, and Murelli. The series was launched in 1997 and remembers the American Civil War from 1861-1865. The CP4 Civil War pens, Washington and Richmond, were planned as a limited edition of 1865 sets, the year the Civil War ended. In view of Bic taking over Sheaffer just prior to the launch of the series, an agreement was reached by Classic Pens and Sheaffer to produce just 500 sets worldwide. The CP4 pens are therefore more exclusive. The CP4 has a wide cap band that is laser engraved with the CP4 and Lambrou & Brown logos, as well as the edition number. A circular engraving machine dating from 1928 was reactivated from the museum of Murelli and was used exclusively to produce the patterns of the CP4 pens. This is partly why these CP4 fountain pens are so special and coveted by collectors.
The Washington Sheaffer Legacy CP4 fountain pen displays a beautiful Sterling Silver diamond pattern referred to as "vague" with a 23K Gold Electroplated Clip fitted with a solid 18K/750 gold nib. The Richmond Sheaffer Legacy CP4 fountain pen displays a beautiful Sterling Silver flowing moiré pattern with a 23K Gold Electroplated Clip fitted with a solid 18K/750 gold nib. The caps and barrels have absolutely no damage, dents, or wear to the finish. Each Fountain Pen measures 5 1/2" inches capped and 5 3/4" posted.
These writing instruments come as a pair of matching Limited Edition 440 fountain pens. Again, these Sheaffer Legacies are like new and have never been inked. The caps has a 23K Gold Electroplated spring-loaded clip. "SHEAFFER USA" is stamped on the sides of the cap clip. The cap banding is Sterling Silver and stamped, "SHEAFFER U.S.A. LB (Lambrou & Brown logo) CP4 STERLING SILVER 925". These Sheaffer Legacies Fountain Pens use the Touchdown Filling system and each one works as it was designed to - I tested both with water and work perfectly. Additionally, one can use Sheaffer ink cartridges.
The caps are always securing tightly to the barrel. The trim is perfect with no scratches or wear.
Each nib is marked 18K Sheaffer 750 and has a Medium point measuring .64mm when measuring with digital calipers. These Sheaffer 18K/750 Medium nibs show no signs of ever being inked.
These Sheaffer Legacy CP4 Washington & Richmond Fountain Pens come in the original box with documentation - it is very scarce finding a CP4 Washington & Richmond Limited Edition number matching set that is Mint Condition with all the original documentation and the original boxes.
These Sheaffer Legacy CP4 Limited Edition Fountain Pens are very scarce examples and certainly treasured writing instruments for one's collection. I would consider these Sheaffer Legacy CP4s to be New Old Stock, Never Inked, and in Mint Condition. A marvelous addition to your writing arsenal collection.
