Sheaffer Flat Top Lady With Early And Late Flat Top Features



Recommended Posts

I have this Sheaffer Flat Top Lady with features that are difficult to explain.

 

The pen is 4.5" long and marked "Lady" on the nib. The single tone nib and pinned lever are early 1930s Flat Top features while the humped flat ball clip suggest 1934 or later. The third line of the barrel imprint has the common "DEC 10.12-JAN. 27-OCT. 20 - NOV. 24" patent dates. The feed is flat serrated, with broad and widely spaced notches. There is no white dot on this pen.

 

Is this a correct cap and barrel combination? The absence of the white dot seems odd.

The absence of the white dot is indeed odd and makes this an incorrect match.

Thanks Roger. Do you have any idea which barrel would be correct for this cap? I have read here on FPN that Flat Tops were in production until the late 1930s but is it correct to expect a white dot on any mid to late 1930s Flat Top cap?

Any Lifetime will have the white dot. Conversely, people end up putting lifetime nibs into non lifetime pens so those wouldn't have white dots but, simply have the wrong nib.
