Size: Length - 5 1/8 inches.
This is a beautiful ballpoint pen in the finish called Silver Lamé, which was a special edition finish from Sheaffer UK and only produced in 1982. It has a beautiful brushed texture silver plate with a unique faceted cap band. These special edition pens were termed "lady" models even though they are actually identical in shape and size to the slim Targa. 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 also has the Lame silver plated finish 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 brushed textured - almost bark effect - finish that is still crisp and sharp, and of course has the unique to this model silver plated and faceted cap band.
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.
A very uncommon Special Edition Targa model.
