Hi experts I just got a sheaffer fat touchdown crest, but it looks weird, or rared. It has a nib imprinted a serial number and a golden threaded section ring. But from almost all the source I can access ( Sheaffer advertisement, online photos, etc.), it seems they built this generation of crest only with chrome threaded section rings. The only exceptional is a fat sentinel Deluxe, which with both golden threaded ring and serial number nib. And I find that sheaffer manufactured some earlier triumph level filled pens with this kind of serial number nibs as well as golden threaded rings. So I have 2 assumptions: 1. someone replaced my crest's nib and section set with one from a triumph level filled pen, would that be possible? Are the nib and section sets of post-war triumph and first year Touchdown interchangeable? 2. Sheaffer indeed manufactured some fat touchdowns with serial number nib and golden threaded rings, but in little amount . I know sheaffer preferred to use golden threaded rings in their early triumph, but with "lifetime" but not serial number imprinted on the nib. So could anyone suggest me some source or information about when and in which product lines sheaffer imprinted serial numbers on the nib and use golden threaded rings?
Hi - I'm getting back into fountain pens and wanted to revisit a pen I bought in the 90s - a Sheaffer 18K gold electroplated fountain pen with black lacquer body. I'd like to know the name of it and also what sort of converter(s) would work in it so I can use bottled ink with it. I've posted a video on YouTube showing the pen, box, and what little documentation I saved: https://youtu.be/6mA8AmlDkx4 A YouTube commenter was kind enough to point me to this forum; the same commenter supposed it is the Sheaffer Crest (Reissue) Black w Gold Cap - Extra Fine 18k Nib. Note there is a '750' on the pen (and mine), which apparently is the nib ("conical Triumph nib. Extra fine"). Bonus question! What converter can I use with this pen? Would a Pilot Con 50 work? Or does Sheaffer only accept proprietary converters? I prefer piston converters, not the squeezy kind. Thanks so much.
Looking for help please as the penhero site has me totally confused now! i have a Sheaffer Touchdown, but based on the cap, I'm confused as to whether this is a Crest or a Crest Deluxe or neither? The cap is right, BUT it doesn't have a white dot on the cap. It's on the end of the body. Is this the wrong cap for this pen?? Why couldn't these crazy pen companies stick to their own models...without variations, lolol! Ugh! Can anyone help identify this pen? Lever Filler Black Conical Lifetime Nib...14K, says Sheaffer's, no serial number 1/10 14K Gold Filled cap - Made in U.S.A. 4 step vertical lines on cap Barrel stamped with 1750 Won't let me post photos.....grrr!
