A beautiful and very nice condition Sheaffer Imperial all metal ballpoint. There are no cracks or dings to either cap or barrel. The only damage I can spot on this pencil is a strangely shaped scuff in the frosting to the side of the barrel that for some reason i was unable to capture sufficiently well with my camera. It is about 10mm long and about 1 to 1 1.2 mm wide and consisted of a row of very uniform hatch marks. I am unsure whether this is a manufacturing fault, or a scuff pucked up during the pencil's use. Whatever it is, it is not really that noticeable and does not detract from the attractiveness of this slim pencil. Both barrel and cap have a lovely delicate radial pattern frosting. The cap has the wide and squared-off gold plated pocket clip with the Sheaffer white dot at the top. The cap pulls off. Beneath is the stub of the original white eraser in its little metal cup. There are a couple of spare 0.9mm leads stored in the barrel beneath the eraser and I have fitted a fresh lead in the mechanism so it is all ready to go.
I have fully serviced this pencil.
