Dear all

Just picked up a new (to me anyway) Lady. It's a pattern I haven't seen before, wavy lines interrupted at regular intervals by the same pattern that is on the model referred to as SeaSpray/Barleycorn.

The pen did not have any reference with it apart from a sale date 26th June 1975. I have seen a reference to a model 928, Gold Plated Interrupted Barleycorn on sheaffertarga.com and was wondering if any of you sages could confirm this is the right model.

Thanks for any advice/info.

I can neither confirm nor deny the model, but it sure is a pretty pen.

Hi Peter,



That's an unusual pattern, at first I thought it was a variation of the zig-zag pattern, but the lines look like they create a moire style wavy line pattern, are they cut in banks or in a long continuous line? I can't help with the model number either and it could turn out to be a prototype, we really need to find some catalogues from 1965 to 1976.





Cheers

Gary



PS Is the pen stamped on the cap?

Is that Gary Ellison?

Thanks for your reply on here, these Lady Sheaffer variants are driving me nuts and I was hoping one of our American cousins might know a little more than we do!



Here's a close up of the barrel. The pattern does runs the whole length of the pen, with the sets of Wavy lines seperating the other lines. Although I didn't pick it up in the picture, the cap is stamped simply 'Sheaffer'

How I wish BIC hadn't binned everything when they took over!

HI Peter,



Yes, it's Gary Ellison with the bad memory who forgot to bid on the pens auction!

Looking at the close up picture, it's definately got a hint of the Flashed/Seaspray pen in the plain parts of the pattern, combined with the wavy lines it gives a really nice effect.

Hopefully someone may have seen this pattern before and know the name of the design.



Cheers

Gary
