Further to the previous, this being as good a place as any, I cleaned up her Lady Sheaffer. The PVC sac (Aerometric filler) seems still to be in good shape. It has been cleaned and is now filled with a standard royal blue (Waterman's Serenity). The F nib writes very well. It is a nice pen, not in the least dinky.
It appears the Lady Sheaffer was introduced in 1958 ("introduced the sex pen wars" say Marshall & Oldfield, though I think not). Based on a single web site after some searching, this example in all-chrome finish (barrel and cap, not section) is said to be Australian manufacture, not elsewhere.
Now comes the deep confession: she stopped using it after I gave her a nice Inoxcrom ballpoint.
Order may yet be restored to the universe.
edit: fixed one item of punctuation
