Vintage Pens: Sheaffer Balance
Vintage Pens: 4130 Sheaffer Balance
Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Striated Golden Brown plays with the light in wonderful ways on this very close to mint condition Sheaffer Balance. It is standard sized, not oversized or junior sized. Its ink view window is perfectly clear and very close to its original color. No brassing, no cracks, no scratches. Fully restored with a new ink sac. Strong, clear imprint. The firm, fine Feather Touch nib is 14k gold, and you'll write a fine line with a little feedback. Its white dot once meant it had a warranty for the lifetime of its original owner. As such, we suspect the nib is not the original to this pen, though it is a genuine Sheaffer nib from that era. 13.9cm capped.
