Sheaffer grew so large by the 1930s, it had a factory in Canada. Our Sheaffer 5-30 Balance is one of the handsome pens made there. We have fully restored this tiger-eye straited junior size pen with a new ink sac. You won't find any cracks or brassing. It has some light wear from use, but it looks pretty sharp. The imprint stands out, indicating that it was made in Malton, Ontario. The 5-30 designation meant that the pen cost $5 and had a 30-year warranty. Click the headline for a great snap of the original 2-tone 14k gold nib. It writes a surprisingly smooth, dry extra-fine line. 12.1cm capped.
