Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time

How nice to capture one of these, I really like the striped pattern also. Love to snag one myself.

We could sense a shift in the Sheaffer flux with so many suddenly appearing overseas.

You have done a very nice job with your three reviews, showing how the classic styling of the Balances and this Triumph Crest never seems to become outdated.

Thank you for the review. One question I have is why you refer to this as the Crest model? I had thought the Sheaffer Crest models are distinguished by an all-metal cap. I had thought that the striated celluloid pen with the Triumph nib is the Sheaffer Valiant, including the wide cap-band model. But I confess that I find vintage Sheaffer model names very confusing.
