Hello pen experts!
Today when I visited a friend she said "oh, I have a fountain pen!" and went to get it to show me. It's an old Sheaffer lifetime lever-filler. Pics below. I've done work on sac replacement on Esties so I'm not totally wet behind the ears. But I don't know about Sheaffer pens.
The section unscrewed easily and the sac fell out whole. Yea! Lever and J-bar in excellent shape.
The nib says J52640, and other than being a bit ink stained, doesn't appear bent, or any other real obvious problems
The cap says "1/10 14K Gold filled Made in USA".
How are the nib and feed removed? That may not be necessary, just curious. Are they OK to be soaked?
What precautions do I need to take with the barrel? Is it celluloid?
I have the Oldfield book so I'll be taking a look there. Thanks for any suggestions/precautions.
