Correct 14ct Gold nib stamped 'Sheaffer's Lifetime Made in USA' with patent numbers. 

Very large nib in perfect condition - firmish MEDIUM nib - very smooth with good ink flow. A delight and an experience to write with.

Lever filler - fully serviced and write tested - perfect working order.

Couple of faults -  one old and very tight cap lip crack. Slight distortion of the barrel end where the pressure bar has acted all these years.

Nice pattern and no discolouration.  Overall a really good example of a rare vintage Lifetime Senior Oversize. Super nib and reasonably priced.Coming up to 100 years old!
