Vintage Pens: Sheaffer Lifetime TouchDown
Vintage Pens: 2259 Sheaffer Lifetime TouchDown
Forest green makes for a standout color on this very early wide-body Sheaffer Lifetime Touchdown. We restored it with a new ink sac and O-ring. The pen is very handsome, but there is some light-moderate wear on the cap and barrel. The imprint is strong, but you can see a little bulge warm from where the cap hugged the section grip. Click the headline for bigger photos of it. The two-tone 14k gold nib writes an extra-extra-fine line. It is very firm, but it is a dream pen for extra-fine nib fans. A great vintage pen. 13.3cm capped.
