SH1551 Targa by Sheaffer No. 1008X Ballpoint, Barleycorn Silver Plate.

Date: 1979

Size: Length - 5 1/8 inches.

A silver plated Targa ballpoint.  This ballpoint is in excellent condition with no damage to report.  It is a special manufacture pen made in 1979 by Sheaffer UK.  As such, it is quite an uncommon pen, especially i condition as good as this one.  There is a little tarnishing to the silver plating - I have not polished it as I know some collectors like to see original patina on their pens, but a minute with a jeweller's cloth will see this pen gleam like new again.  I am always happy to give it a polish if you wish before sending it out, so if you'd like this please let me know.   The cap has the distinctive flat top with a black inlaid disk and a silver plated band above the pierced gold plated white dot pocket clip.   The design is very much inspired by 1920s flat-top pens.  The cap pulls off to allow the replacement of the ballpoint ink cartridge.  The pen is fitted with a modern Sheaffer refill in blue and it works perfectly.  This is a twist-operated retractable ballpoint.  

I have fully serviced this pen.
