Size: Length - 5 3/16 inches.
This is a beautiful ballpoint in the finish called Lamé, which was a special edition finish from Sheaffer UK and only produced in 1982. It is 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 pencil is in excellent condition with no damage that I can find at all. 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 chrome plated and faceted cap band.
This is a twist-action ballpoint. I have fitted a fresh refill into the pen's mechanism and it is working perfectly.
A very uncommon Special Edition Targa model.
