A remarkable No. 676 Feather finish Targa ballpoint. This pen has the black under-lacquer with the gold "feather" pattern highlights and all gold plated trim. I can see a couple of pinprick sized chips to the black lacquer at the top edge of the button at the end of the barrel, but that is the extent of the damage I can see on this pen. The fairly delicate gold inlaid pattern is still perfect. The top of the cap is inset a circular metal "jewel". 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.
I rarely see this pattern any more. An instant classic.
