Vintage Pens: Sheaffer Imperial
Vintage Pens: 5665 Sheaffer Imperial
Fountain Pen Nib Size: B
Sheaffer Imperial pens remained in production for nearly 40 years. They were one of the last of the great golden era fountain pens released by Sheaffer. We believe this stunning Sheaffer Imperial to be from the mid-1970s. Close to mint condition, this rarer sterling silver model sports a barley corn pattern. You have to look insanely hard under the right light to find a kiss of a dimple in the cap. The rest is pretty surprisingly nice. It comes with its original aerometric style converter, and it also can take Sheaffer cartridges. You will write a nice broad line with its 18k gold inlaid nib. We actually filled this one up and wrote with it all the way dry. The nib is smooth, but it does have some hard starts, which can get annoying. 13.1cm capped.
