Product Information

SHEAFFER BALANCE II Fountain Pen.    BROAD OBLIQUE NIB

 

Model number 873 in classic BLACK moulded resin with 23ct gold plated trim.

Made in USA 1998 - measures 147mm (5 3/4") - lovely chunky size pen. Sheaffer white dot to cap - medium cap band.

The original Sheaffer Balance was produced in 1928 and reproduced by Sheaffer on the 70th aniversary when the Balance Limited Edition was introduced. Following this in 1998 a new Balance collection was introduced now known as the Balance II. Our pen is part of this collection.  Further information at https://www.sheaffertarga.com/Balance/Balance%20Write%20Up.html

Our pen does have an issue - a previous owner has obviously applied too much pressure to the pocket clip resulting in a small stress split in the resin as pictured. This has now been permanently repaired and is stable but the repair can still be seen and is very much reflected in the price of this otherwise beautiful pen. Please see pictures.

  

Correct 14ct  Gold nib stamped 'Sheaffer's LIFETIME 14k 585 Made in USA.' BROAD STRAGHT CUT ITALIC nib in perfect condition and hardly ever used I think. A real pleasure to write with. Please see writing sample.

  

Fitted with Sheaffer twist piston converter for bottle filling. Also takes readily available Sheaffer cartridges if you prefer.

Apart from the repair mentioned above the pen is in excellent condition. But for the repair it would be around twice the asking price. This fabulous nib is probably worth the asking price on its own. Still a super, top quality pen for everyday use. Grab a bargain!
