Vintage Pens: Sheaffer Lifetime Telephone Dialer
Vintage Pens: 4075 Sheaffer Lifetime Telephone Dialer
Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Way back in the 20th century we had curious inventions known as telephones. They were simple electrical devices that allowed people to talk to each other over long distances. No texting. No videos. No camera. Just talking. To place a call, as it was known, you'd have to spin a ring to connect to a different phone's number. Sheaffer Lifetime Telephone Dialer pens included a special tail to help people spin the ring and dial a number. Definitely on the rarer side of Sheaffer collection, these pens are a real treat. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. The jade green celluloid has only a few spots of discoloring and looks amazingly sharp.

Its matching pencil still works! Takes 1.1mm lead. 14.3cm capped.
