Perfection is nearly achieved with the color on this green Sheaffer Lifetime Flat Top. You'll only find minor discoloration around the threads of the barrel. No brassing or cracks! It has been restored with a new ink sac. Sporting the straight "flat" pocket clip, the cap is great except for one impression near the top of the clip and to the left. More oval than a BB but about the same size. On the barrel, you'll find a clean, crisp imprint. And, of course, the star attraction is its 14k gold nib! It writes a wet, fine line very smoothly, but some people might think it is more of a medium. Either way it is delightfully smooth. We love the white dot on the top of the flat top. No imprint is on the flat tail side. Good enough for a museum but still a joy with which to write. 13.5cm capped.
