Product Information

SHEAFFER LIFETIME BALANCE OVERSIZE Fountain Pen

BLACK and PEARL - c1929 - streamlined cap with squared off barrel. - Lever Fill.

Large 'chunky' pen measuring 140mm (almost 51/2 ins) closed.

White dot to cap - long clip with middle hump and ball - medium cap band (not engraved).

Barrel imprint 'W A Sheaffer Pen Co USA' with patent numbers and dates.

Correct 14ct Gold nib stamped Sheaffer Lifetime USA with pat nos.

Nib is in excellent condition - firm FINE nib - writes smoothly.

Lever filler - fully serviced and fitted with silicone sac. Write tested - perfect working order.

As with most of the Black & Pearls of this period the pearl colour has darkened very slightly. Have tried to show this in the pics.

Still a beautiful pen and one of the nicest examples I have seen. 

A beautiful top quality vintage Sheaffer - normal usage marks only - lovely 'chunky' feel.

PS  This model with squared off barrel and streamline cap was not a transitional model. Sheaffer catalogues show that these hybrid pens were part of the model range and sold well into the 1930s. They are sometimes referred to as 'half balances.'
