Hello,

 

Got this sheaffer on my vacation trip and needed help to identify it.

Hello jar and thank you.

 

The sheaffer name on the clip is old style, no white dot, made in USA, was wondering if it's an old pen. Any name for it or model number?

 

Best regards.

The issue is the textured section which only showed up on later "school" entry level pens. The flat ends place it at the last iteration of the three "School" pen versions but the section dates nit as even later. It's always possible that the cap and body are from the third iteration of the "School" pen and the section/nib from a later model.

 

I don't remember any of them being called anything but "Cartridge pen".

Hello again, will call it the cartridge pen.

Any rough idea about the year it was made?

 

Thank you for all the help.

The third iteration began around the mid seventies and ran until near the end of the century. The textured section would place it near the end of the version so likely in the 90s.

I had one of these pens that i bought used in 1987 in burgundy color but with smooth black section and not with the textured one. It was a wet smooth writer. Unfortulately I, somehow, lost that pen a few years ago.

 

Edited to add the word 'used'.

Hey ! Seeing your flag I would like to add I bought the pen in Baghdad when I was posted in my country's mission/embassy there in the 80s.

 

Edited for correcting typos.

Nice to know that,

 

This days it's hard to find a shop offering fountain pens, while in 70s and begining of 80s you could hardly see any one without a sheaffer or parker in his shirt's pocket.

      @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.
