Sheaffer Lifetime?


Mob Mentality
 Share

Recommended Posts

Hello all. I recently purchased a sheaffer pen that has a lifetime nib but I can't seem to identify it. I think someone may have put the wrong cap on the pen. The cap looks like a Sheaffer Cadet cap. Here's a link to the Sheaffer Cadet: http://penhero.com/PenGallery/Sheaffer/SheafferTipDip.htm. I got the pen very cheap and it is in good shape I have yet to clean the pen. Any help you could provide in identifying the pen would be great. I posted pictures of the barrel imprint as well as the nib and cap. Thanks in advance.

Is it possible that an older Lifetime nib and feed have been put in a Cadet section?

Pen Lady, I know that the Cadet nibs unscrewed and could be swapped out for various other nibs designed for the pen. I'm not sure whether a lifetime nib would be interchangable with the pen.

From what I can tell the Cadet 23 was the only version available with a 14k nib and it wasn't a lifetime nib.

Oh right, I'd forgotten about the screw-out nib. It's just that the section and barrel look more modern than a pen that would have a lifetime nib. Aren't they from an earlier generation of pens?

Pen lady you are correct. The single tone lifetime nib was introduced in 1924. However I'm not sure when it was discontinued. In any case the pen does seem like the nib doesn't belong on it. The section also seems far newer than those that have lifetime nibs. But for the $20 that I paid I think it's worth my time trying to unravel the mystery. I like to know what pen I have before I start putting it back into working condition installing a new sac and such.

Thanks for the correction Roger. Any ideas about what the pen is?

Daniel is of course right on this. The first ad I have is August 1921 showing a Lifetime nib, April still shows the 8 so perhaps earlier but no later than August 1921.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
