Vintage Pens: Sheaffer Balance
Vintage Pens: 4076 Sheaffer Balance
Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
An oversized Sheaffer Balance is a must for most vintage pen collectors. We restored this classic pen with a new ink sac, and we are happy to note just how clear green the ink viewing window is. (Normally, this discolor to an amber.) The white dot on the cap became Sheaffer's logo, but at the time it designated the pen came with a lifetime warranty, for the life of the original owner. The cap and barrel look great. Minimal wear and no cracks. The only real flaw is moderate brassing on the cap ring and clip. You will write a very nice, firm extra fine line with the 14k gold nib that features only a hint of feedback. 14.1cm capped.
