- Source: eBay
Sheaffer 500 Fountain Pen Welcome to my auction! You are bidding for a nice Sheaffer 500 fountain pen in Silver Pearl Stripes This Sheaffer dates to about 1936 - 1938. The trim is nickel plated, and shows some signs of wear. T is an imprint on the cap ring - 'CHARLES JR.' The nib is a very sweet Sheaffer's 14K No. 5 Feather Touch - F point - nice flex - not typical of Sheaffer nibs. It is in superb condition. This pen is a lever filler. I installed a new ink sac, so it is ready for writing if that is your desire. Good spring to the lever filling mechanism as well. T is also a nice ink vue section below the nib, so you can tell when it's time to refill the pen with ink. It measures about 5 1/2 inches with the cap on, and close to 6 with the cap posted. This pen has nice balance and weight. T are nice Sheaffer barrel imprints, along with the number '500'. Sheaffer also made a 350, and 1000. This is a good size - perfect for daily writing, nice size and weight, and a great writing nib! Shipping: $7.50 to USA buyers; actual shipping charges plus $4.00 to the rest of the world. Insurance upon request. Payment: I accept, PayPal, Money Orders, and Personal Checks. Checks must clear before I can ship your item. Happy bidding! Oh, I have other cool pens listed as well, or will be listed in the next several days, so please check back.
