Did Sheaffer make a green-gold? Other manufacturers did during this time period, and this has a greenish hue to it. Whether it is or not, is almost immaterial. It is dent free, almost entirely free of scratches, free of brassing and if it wasn't for a little spot of wear on the flat barrel end cap it would be nearly perfect. It is fully restored with a new ink sac. Oh! You will enjoy a SEMI-FLEX nib made of 14k gold. It is rare early nib marked "Self-Filling," which meant that it wasn't a dip or eyedropper fountain pen. It goes from a true extra fine to a little over 1mm wide. It might take a little while for the nib to train you and you to train it, but it is a splendid nib. 9.9cm capped.
