Vintage Pens: Sheaffer Balance

Vintage Pens: 4687 Sheaffer Balance
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $299.99
We don't know what you will love more: the tasty oversized design of the green-straited Sheaffer Balance or its buttery smooth medium-broad nib? We restored this crack-free beast with a new ink sac. At arm's length, it looks stunning stunning in glossy green joy. A closer inspection shows a little brassing on the clip and cap band, a small mark to the left of the clip and the half-polished out name "Stuart McAlister" to the left of the lever as the nib points up. Its 14k gold nib really is a dream to write with, and there is still reasonable barrel clarity in the viewing window of the section. A phenomenal writer in a more difficult to find size. 13.6cm capped.
