Vintage Pens: Sheaffer Triumph Masterpiece

Vintage Pens: 4074 Sheaffer Triumph Masterpiece
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $799.99
For any serious Sheaffer collector, this is a grail pen. The Sheaffer Triumph Masterpiece is made of 14k gold and very rare, only made between 1942 and 1945. These introduced the world to the conical nib that would become standard on later Sheaffer pens. We restored ours with a fresh ink sac, and the rest of the pen looks very good. No cracks. No engravings. Yet, as soft as gold is, the top of the cap is a tiny bit flattened, and there's a small dimple to the left of the pocket clip. There are two short single line impressions above and to the left of the clip. The tail area has a couple small dents around where the cap might have posted. Its two-tone 14k gold nib writes a very firm extra-fine line with a little feedback. A once in a lifetime find. 14cm capped.
