Vintage Pens: Sheaffer Half Balance
Vintage Pens: 3431 Sheaffer Half Balance
Behold a hyper-rare site! We are excited to present the cleanest black-and-pearl design we've ever seen on a vintage Sheaffer. There are only a couple spots of light discoloration, whereas most of these pens are brown and black these days. On top of that distinction, this is an authentic Sheaffer Half Balance, where the pen has a Balance cap and a flat-top body. These were actually cataloged by Sheaffer when they came out. Ours is beautiful and crack-free. It has been restored with a working ink sac. Its nib is 14k gold Lifetime model with its original inkfeed. You will write a smooth medium line when writing from a low angle of attack. If you keep the pen more verticle, it gets more feedback and a finer line. Nice big pen with good girth for improved, cramp-free writing. 13.5cm capped.
