Vintage Pens: 2633 Sheaffer Imperial Sovereign
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $125.00
Sheaffer Imperial pens were the last of the company's line from the golden era of fountain pens to survive into the modern era. This Sheaffer Imperial Sovereign was a particularly high-end model with a gold-filled diamond-cut design from the late 1970s. Ours is in pretty darn good condition with no dents or deep scratches. Its only flaws are a little brassing on the very top and bottom, along with a tiny bit on the edges of the clip. It writes with a delightfully smooth and juicy 1mm broad 14k gold nib. Not stubbiness, just a nice rounded nib. It comes with an original converter that is a little leaky but works. It can use modern Sheaffer converters or cartridges, too! 13.1cm capped.
