This vintage fountain pen forms part of the Targa range - a very successful model produced by the Sheaffer Pen Company. This particular example, issued around 1976, has a sterling silver finish with an attractive chequered pattern offset by the gold plated Sheaffer Targa clip with its white dot quality lifetime mark.The fountain pen sports the stylish Sheaffer 14ct gold inlaid nib with a medium point which states "Sheaffer USA 585 14k". The text around the cap lip reads “Sterling Silver Sheaffer USA”. As you will see from the montage there is some minor age wear and this is reflected in the price. The fountain pen is fitted with a Sheaffer squeezebox filling unit and it will also take a current Sheaffer ink cartridge. This attractive and stylish vintage fountain pen measures 135mm with cap on and 152mm with cap on barrel end. The Targa range is fast becoming highly collectable and, 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.
