Pre-Owned Pens: Sheaffer Targa

Pre-Owned Pens: 3527 Sheaffer Targa
Era: 1980-present
Price: $99.99
The golden age of fountain pens had come to an end, but the Sheaffer Targa helped to prove there was still interest in fountain pens, when it came out in the late 1970s. This blue-marbled Sheaffer Targa came out later in the 1980s, and it is a very handsome variant. You'll even be pleasantly surprised to find it still has its original, working squeeze-bar converter. It should fit modern converters and Sheaffer cartridges, too. You'll see a little trace wear but nothing significant. Its inlaid 14k gold nib writes firm, dry extra-fine line. 13.5cm capped.
