Which Sheaffer Model Is This? What Should I Look Out For?



Recommended Posts

Okay. That may explain it.

 

Sheaffer did make a pen in that body style with a 23K plated nib BUT it should have an opal on the top. The nib and section either came from one of the few models that used that nib or the opal came off your pen.

 

From Sheaffer Targa dot Com

 

The regular fluted gold plate Targa should have a 14K nib.

 

Jar , the link you provided says the Targa with opal fitted into end cap also came with 14k solid gold nib. The plot , thus , thickens , instead of being resolved.lol.

Here's my nib:

The inscription is different than Mitto's. It says:

14K        585

      S
      A

Here is a closeup on the 14K:

That's a Targa and a solid gold 14k nib. Targas are quite nice pens and very sturdy. They have a very loyal following. My very first fountain pen was a Targa from the early 80's. Smooth as can be.

 

Congratulations! This should serve you well for a very long time.

Thanks! I certainly hope it will. :) Especially since I replaced the sac in its squeeze converter.

That's the 1005, regular fluted 23C gold plated Targa.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
