This is a beautiful ballpoint pen in the finish called Lacque Cobalt Blue It had a beautiful, glossy over-lacquer of a deep blue ground with lighter blue reticulation. The lacquer on these pens was hand-applied in many layers in order to build up the depth of the pattern. This pen is in excellent condition with absolutely no damage on it at all that I can spot. The top of the cap is polished gold plate with a black "jewel" at the very end. The pierced straight pocket clip is again polished gold plated and bears the Sheaffer white dot.
This is a twist-action pen. The cap pulls off to allow the refill to be changed. It is currently fitted with a modern Sheaffer refill in blue, which works perfectly.
A beautiful late 1980s finish.
