Every writer needs a good, reliable pen to use in the trenches of life, no matter where it takes you. We have one such friend in this vintage pen known as a Sheaffer 500. Fully restored with a fresh ink sac, you can write all day with it. Heavy brassing on the cap band, light brassing on the pocket clip and some wear on the cap and barrel only signify that this was a trusty pen back in the day that is ready for more action now. You can still see through the inkview window, although it is a dark amber. The two-tone 14k gold nib writes a fine line pretty well. 13.5cm capped.
