A very attractive glossy dove grey Valiant. This pen is fitted with a gold filled pocket clip and wide cap lip band and a beautiful large two-tone 14 carat gold Triumph nib. The gold filling on the clip and cap band is in excellent condition with no brassing evident. Above the clip is the Sheaffer white dot. Both cap and barrel exhibit a good original sheen with no chips, cracks or splits and no noticeable surface scratches either. I can not actually find any damage at all on this pen, and it looks to have hardly - if ever - been used. The nib is a lovely large Sheaffer Triumph nib made from 14 carat gold. It is a fine point and was made in Australia, as is the whole pen, and intended for export to the UK. The snorkel filler is still shiny with no tarnishing and all the insides are as they should be.
I have fully serviced this pen. The pen now fills very well - the plunger operates easily and the Snorkel tube winds in and out smoothly. I have tested the pen and found that it writes very smoothly, producing a good wet and consistent fine width line.
A very classy pen and an excellent writer.
