Lovely pen. Good to see one with the brilliants all in place too.

 

I can imagine that it would be rewarding to build a collection just from this line of Sheaffers

I'm not sure if this counts as a lady Sheaffer. I know it's a Flamme:

Is it just me feeling very old and at peace with who I am but does anyone else think that these pens are now very attractive and if they were ever designated as being for women that this really doesnt matter in the slightest?


How many people does it take to comment on a question on FPN? One to give advice and make suggestions. Another one to repeat everything that the first poster has said. Fourteen to share their own experiences of their pens and comment on how the original advice was flawed.
Seven who just want to increase their post count. One to say that they have no regrets about doing anything and people should follow their example. Another to say that if there is anything wrong with the pen it is just down to using Diamine Shimmer ink. Six to argue over whether its a worth doing anything with it and the OP should just throw it away and buy their Parker 51. Another six to condemn all of the above as being  stupid and anyway they would rather be on FP Geeks. One to say that the pen is cheaper where they live. Five people to post pics of their own pens. One to say that if the OP had Faith then the pen would work - and gets banned very quickly.

Finally, one to close down the thread because it has lost its way.

You are 100% right. These are the only pens among the 50s-60s' C/C filler Sheaffer pens that I adore. Some of mines came, howecer, with short triumph nibs. Don't know if those nibs / sections are original to the pens or are replacement.

PS.
I have just saw the nib on the XIV Tulle shown above by Jim. Some of my Ladies with the triumph nibs are the ones with the clips ie not the clipless like this one. So may be these came both with short triumph as well stylepoint(?) nibs.

The clipless Lady Sheaffer pens were made from 1958 to 1964.  Sheaffer used the short conical nib on them from 1958 to 1961 and switched to the Stylpoint nib in 1962.

Yes, later pens did come with the short conical nibs.

I trust these are all Lady Sheaffers. The pen on the left is perhaps my best writer of all and that says a lot since I am a big fan of the Parker 75 and 51. I bought it some years ago and inked it straight away ..... and boy what a lovely pen. It has remained inked ever since and is my preferred every day carry.

Hi, Folks! 

 
This is a Lady Sheaffer II Corduroy c. 1959.  This clipless model features an Ivory color enameled metal cap and barrel with engraved lines and gold color fill Sheaffer called Corduroy.  The section is Ivory color to match the cap and barrel.  The correct nib for this pen is palladium silver and is not hallmarked. This one has a gold nib, which probably was a replacement.  The pen is about 5 3/8 inches long capped.  It sold for $10.00 and the matching pencil sold for $4.95.  The packaging was a large elaborate oval paperboard cylinder similar to a cosmetics package, which included a cloth pen and pencil holder and separate ink cartridge holder.
