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 dates from around 1990 and is the 2nd edition of 1083 with a quite rare finish in laque spiral black. The spiral (or cable twist) decoration, whilst being a little difficult to see here unless you enlarge the montage, is very striking and is offset by the smooth gold plated clip and cap top. You will note the thin cap band (the first edition had a wider cap band) is repeated near the bottom of the barrel. Around the cap are the words “Sheaffer U.S.A.”. It has the stylish Sheaffer 14ct gold inlaid nib with a medium to slightly broad point which states "Sheaffer U.S.A. 585 14k". Condition is very good with only minor age wear. As you would expect it has the Sheaffer "Lifetime" dot on the clip. Filling is by insertion of an ink cartridge, preferably Sheaffer but an international cartridge size will suffice. In common with other cartridge fill pens when first fitting a new cartridge you need to encourage the ink to flow through from the cartridge to the nib with a slight squeeze of the cartridge. It is quite a heavy, substantial pen in the hand and measures 137mm with cap on and 155mm with cap on end. The Targa range, with its large 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.
