Hi, I picked this up recently in amongst a load of other pens - having difficulty in tying down the model/date.

In style (nib, barrel and cap) it appears a good match with the Imperial II Touchdowns of ca.1962. However its a cartridge filler and i haven't found any reference to Sheaffer marketing such a pen. Is there anyone out there who can enlighten me? With the conical nib it makes for a fine writer (even finer with the nib reversed).

 

 

Thanks

 

PS. I did find a reference to the Imperial models being reintroduced in 1969 with a cartridge filler option, but these had a new style cap  with a white dot - I suppose its possible that over the years simply an old style cap has been paired up with a 1969 Imperial CT model.

It looks like something from the 1970's era, similar to the stylist pens but a lower end. Any clue if that nib is steel or palladium silver? (My guess is steel).

The Sheaffer Imperial II and III also came as cartridge pens.

Hi, I believe the original Imperial II touchdown had an (unhallmarked) Palladium-silver nib (see: http://penhero.com/P...erialsEarly.htm) Was a steel Triumph type nib ever produced?

Thanks for the link to the previous discussion - I'm beginning to appreciate finding this combination of the Triumph type nib with cartridge filling.

I also have a Sheaffer Imperial-style cartridge pen that I haven't identificated.

Mine is similar to Imperial III (or Target) but it's strange becouse it has a gold plated nib (note: it's a full gold plated nib, not bi-color).

Somebody know which pen is this?

I don't know. There's not written "Australia" anywhere. I bought that on eBay, used, and the seller only said "Vintage".
