Perfection is rarely found in oversized Sheaffer Balances in the Marine Green motif, but this pen is as close to perfection as we've ever seen. It might have a few traces of light wear, but look at the way that color pops in the photo. No discoloration. No brassing. No cracks. No scratches. It has been fully restored with a new ink sac. And, as if you weren't drooling enough already, it writes a very smooth fine line with its firm, two-tone 14k gold nib. This pen belongs in the Smithsonian, but how you will keep yourself from wanting to write with it all day is beyond us. Click the headline for close-ups! 14.2cm capped.
