Pencil: Sheaffer Balance 250

Pencil: 5005 Sheaffer Balance 250
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $29.99
Striated Carmine is one of the rarest colors of this era in Sheaffer production. Our Sheaffer Balance 250 is a great vintage pencil still in good working order. The 250 imprinted on the barrel meant that it cost $2.50 when it was brand new. Its celluloid is worn from use, but there are no cracks. Its gold plated trim only shows a hint of brassing on the ball of the pocket clip. You fill this pencil with .9mm leads, and it comes with a few spares. The eraser is long gone. Advance and retract the lead with a twist of the tail cap. 12.2cm.
