Medium nib, Squeezebox fill system.
This vintage pen is one of the successful Targa range - a model produced by the Sheaffer Pen Company from 1976 to 1999. This particular version, with its gold plated finish is one of the earlier models and dates from around 1976. The cap carries the words “Sheaffer U.S.A. Gold Electroplated” and the Sheaffer “crown”. It has the stylish Sheaffer inlaid nib that provides a smooth, firm, medium point. The text on the nib states "Sheaffer U.S.A. 585 14k". Condition is very good. It comes in its original red presentation box and this has obviously protected it well. As you would expect it has the Sheaffer "Lifetime" dot on the gold plated clip. The cap has a plain area for personalization and you will note that it also carries the original retail sticker that states “Targa 1005 Medium”. This attractive and stylish fountain pen has a Sheaffer squeezebox filler unit fitted but you could also use a Sheaffer ink cartridge available from most stationers if you prefer. It is quite a substantial pen in the hand and measures 135mm with cap on and 153mm with cap on barrel end. The Targa series, with its wide range of finishes, is an interesting model to collect as well as a pleasure to use everyday. All fountain pens are professionally serviced and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. A gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout where you may also select your method of payment.
