In our humble opinion, you can't beat the incredible quality of the Sheaffer Lifetime nibs of the 1920s. The solid 14k gold nib on this Sheaffer Lifetime Jr. writes a very smooth, wet extra fine line! It is incredible. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. The green celluloid has discolored a bit, and the ebonite section is scratched and has a chocolate hazing. There are no cracks in the pen, but there is moderate wear and light scratching in the cap and barrel. The clip and cap band have some brassing. The white dot on the flattop cap meant the pen has a warranty for the lifetime of the original owner's life. 11.7cm capped.
