Vintage Pens: Sheaffer Balance

Vintage Pens: 3400 Sheaffer Balance
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $59.99
Green marbling in celluloid looks fantastic in a Sheaffer Balance. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac, and it is ready to be a warrior on your desk. Although it is ready for plenty of action, this classic fountain pen has more than its fair share of use from a lifetime of reliable service. Click the headline for close-ups, and you will see a ton of brassing on the metal trim. You'll also see a lot of wear on the cap and barrel. The cap lip is uneven and shaved down a little in front. Its two-ton 14k gold nib is missing much of its two ton. However the original nib writes a nice, firm extra-fine line with feedback. Great for daily use and travel. 12.1cm capped.
