This is a ballpoint pen and pencil set in the finish called Metallic Copper. It is a shiny, mirror polished deep copper colour finished set and both pieces are in excellent and near-pristine condition. I can find no damage to either pen or pencil, not even any of the usually ever-present micro-scratches that you find with the highly polished pens. I can't see that either piece has really ever been used. The caps have flat tops with a wide gold plated collar. Below is a gold plated and pierced pocket clip with the Sheaffer White Dot at the shoulder. The points are also gold plated.
Fitted with its original and perfectly working Sheaffer ballpoint refill, this is a twist-action ballpoint.
A twist-action pencil. The cap pulls off to reveal an unused white eraser, with a storage area beneath. I have fitted a fresh 0.5mm lead in the pencil so it is all ready to go.
This red leathertte-covered box is from the same period in time as the pens, but is probably not the "correct" box - usually, Tarka pens were supplied in a Targa-branded box. However, they have been together for some years now, so I will not separate them. The box is a bit battered with a long scuff to the lid, and the once-white interior has yellowed a bit with age.
I have fully serviced this set. Both items are in fully working and near-pristine condition. This Metallic Copper colourway is one of the more unusual and hard to find finishes for the Targa pens. I have actually not seen it before in over 15 years of collecting and selling.
