Vintage Pens: Sheaffer TouchDown

Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $69.99
The late 1940s brought a new ink-filling system to Sheaffer. It was the TouchDown filler. This ingenious system used pneumatics to help fill an conventional ink sac. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac and O-ring. You can see the pen is in pretty good shape, with a crisp imprint. The cap is steel and sports several obvious dents. You will write a dreamy, smooth fine line with its two-tone 14k gold Triumph nib. 13.3cm capped.
