We don't often offer parts for sale, as we need them too badly, ourselves. However, this complete senior Sheaffer Lifetime flattop nib assembly was a consignment pen where the celluloid cap and barrel were far too badly krazed and brittle to carry on life. Therefore, this still functional set of a section, 14k gold nib and feed need a new home. The outside diameter of the nipple is about 8mm and the friction fit bit appears to be about a centimeter wide. We don't have a caliper to be certain. The Lifetime nib writes wet fine line that some people might call medium. It might be a shade scratchy but writing with only it and no barrel is tricky for accurate results.
