Sheaffer discontinued this forest green color after only about 4 years in production for the pastel series of pencils that dominated the 1950s. Although it is not marked a Sheaffer's 400, it is marked Sheaffer's and is identical to the 400 model pencils. In fact, the neat curio about this pencil's imprint are the letters "FA" just under and to the left of the imprint. It is in excellent working order preloaded with original .9mm leads. This vintage pencil was a daily user and sports some scratches and wear. Looks good, overall. 12.2cm.
