This is a beautiful ballpoint pen in the finish called Diamond Squares, which was manufactured in the U. S. and was a very early finish for the Targa range. It has a beautiful deep square-cut design which reminds me of a bar of chocolate! This pen is in excellent condition with absolutely no damage on it at all that I can spot. Although without its box, it has been kept in its little plastic sleeve and has not even picked up any tarnish to the silver plating. The top of the cap is polished silver plate with a black "jewel" at the very end. The pierced straight pocket clip is polished chrome plated and bears the Sheaffer white dot. Both cap and barrel have the lovely diamond square textured finish that is still crisp and sharp.
This is a twist-action pen. The cap pulls off to allow the refill to be changed. It is currently fitted with its original "wingnut" Sheaffer refill in blue, which still works perfectly.
You'll not find a better example of this very early and unusual finish.
