Size: Capped - 5 5/16inches; posted - 6 3/8 inches.
This beautiful23-caratt gold electroplated Targa is the full-sized pen and has no damage at all that I can find. Both barrel and cap are decorated with deeply incised vertical lines - Sheaffer calls this the "Fluted" pattern. The flat-topped cap has a black plastic disc inset into the top with a pierced pocket clip with the Sheaffer white dot at the top. The cap lip is imprinted "Gold Electroplated [crown] Sheaffer USA". The barrel also has a black insert in the end. It unscrews to allow the pen to be refilled. It can be used with a standard Sheaffer ink converter or with standard Sheaffer ink cartridges. The nib is a superb 14 carat gold inlaid nib. It is in a medium point. The box is the original brown leatherette covered hard shell presentation case. On the outside there is gold tooling, with "SHEAFFER" and the white dot on the lid. The inside of the lid is lined with a pinky beige coloured satin, and the pad is made from a beige coloured flocked material. .
I have fully serviced this pen. The nib is just superb. It produces an very smooth, wet and medium width line.
It looks like this pen has barely been used. Certainly, there is no damage on it at all.
