I bought a Sheaffer set of a ballpoint and a fountain pen. Both have "Gold Electroplated" engraved. But I just could not find what they could be. This is what the pens look like:

I hope this picture is okay - otherwise I will take a better one with better lighting tomorrow.

I was going to say Targa, but the profile and clip design lead me to think the same- Fashion pen.

I think these take the thin cartridge that Sheaffer doesn't make anymore, so make sure you get a converter in case this pen didn't come with one.

The pen actually features a converter, so it seems I'm lucky. Does anybody know anything more about these pens because I could not find very much on the web - especially nothing about the gold version.

By the way - the set did only cost me 15,50 Euros. I think that is a good deal and the previous owner does not seem to have used them.

Hi Bono,

You have a Fashion 270 Fluted Gold Plated Set in 23ct gold electroplate, first made in 1993 and was basically a wider version of the TRZ/Fashion 70.

If I remember correctly the Classic size ink carts and convertor fit this model.

On a Sheaffer family related issue can I suggest that Garys site http://www.sheaffertarga.com/ is required reading!
