Sheaffer White Dot Flat Tp :ever Filler

Recommended Posts

I am thinking that this Sheaffer white dot is a flat top lever filler from somewhere around 1930, plus or minus.



On the barrel is:



W.A. SHEAFFER PATENT AUG 25, 08 FT. MADISON IA USA DEC 10 12 - JAN 27-OCT 20 - NOV 24 14



Anything else anyone can add?

Probably a bit earlier than 1930. Sheaffer introduced the streamlined Balance model in 1929, though they did still make flat-tops into the 30's but with a different clip design than yours..

A lot bit earlier than 1930 as it still has the "F" for Fiberloid imprinted on the end of the barrel which was discontinued in 1926. So the range on this would be late 1924 to late 1926. The clip shown went into 1930 so dating it based on that wasn't too bad. Flattops went into wartime but, with different clips and lever attachment.

Beatiful pen. I like the pre-Balance Flat top Sheaffers. I regard them the Sheaffer counterpart of Parker Flat top Duofolds of the 20s.
