As far as rose glow Sheaffers go, this is one of the rose glowiest we've seen. Rotate this Sheaffer Milady Balance set under a strong light and you'll see a great diversity of shadings between dusty pink and an almost burgundy pink, as well as delightful runs of grey in the rare celluloid. The fountain pen sports a new ink sac, and you can still see through the slightly clouded viewing window. No cracks, a spot of brassing on the cap band and just a little bit of wear from use. A nice crisp imprint on the pen and pencil. The pencil has some deeper nicks on the cap, but they are really hard to see unless intentionally looking for them. No brassing or cracks. Plus, the 1.1mm pencil works well, has extra leads and a hardened eraser under the cap. You'll write a fine line with a little feedback AND a little flex with the 14k gold nib. Slender pen measures 12.2cm capped.
