Vintage Pens: Sheaffer Secretary
Vintage Pens: 2284 Sheaffer Secretary
Behold the oversized Sheaffer Secretary vintage pen. A real grail pen. Made of an eye-catching red radite in circa 1926, you'll even get the original 14k Secretary nib. Click the headline to see the special design. Effectively a Sheaffer Lifetime, it was 20% cheaper, had a size 7 nib instead of the size 8 and didn't include the lifetime warranty. However, it was every bit as satisfying. These days, the Sheaffer Secretary is a hard-to-find vintage pen...especially an oversized model in this pen's condition. It has only a little wear to the cap and barrel. The ink sac has been replaced. The imprint is fairly well faded. Its biggest flaws are two hairline cracks in the lip of the pen. In some lights, you can see two slightly discolored/darkened rings around the cap that are only a shade or two darker than the cap. Only a little brassing on the cap band. The nib writes a firm, true extra-fine line, with a little feedback. 13.1cm capped.
