Identify Sheaffer Pen

Recommended Posts

I'm pretty new to this fountain pen business, but managed to get hold of a sheaffer nib/front section (i.e, nib, filler, grip) and thought I'd try and figure out what model it is.

it's burgundy, with gold trim just above the nib, and above the grip. the grip is burgundy plastic. the nib is gold, and in a 'classic' style (i.e., not the sheaffer distinctive targa/imperial kind). engraved on the nib it has 'SHEAFFER', then 'F - 4' below, and finally 'M' at the bottom.

any suggestions or insights would be appreciated.

many thanks

ah yes, picture :P

due to my less-than-ideal photography skills, you can't see that much detail, but hopefully enough to get the picture (not pun intented).

thanks again for your help

Hi. Welcome home. Pull up a stump and set a spell.

 

Is the nib gold or gold toned?

eh... honestly not sure. what's the difference/how do I tell?

Relatively modern gold nibs will be marked with the purity. Unfortunately many fakes are also marked even though they are low grade steel. But no hallmark on a relatively modern pen definitely means not gold.

This may help or at least give you a visual idea of what went with that section.
