Only in production for a little more than 2 years, the Sheaffer TM Triumph is a handsome and dependable pen that uses Sheaffer's genius "TouchDown" filling system. The penultimate model of the TM line, this pen is gold-filled. It is in nearly pristine condition, only having a small impression in the barrel. There is no brassing or any other indentation of any kind. No engravings, either. It looks almost mint. We restored it with a new ink sac and O-ring. As you can see in the photo, there is no staining in the ink-view window. The two-tone 14k gold Triumph nib writes a smooth fine line. Clip is tight, but it has about a half a millimeter of play in it. 13.5cm capped.
